The Massage Session

Preparation

Your dog will be most comfortable after a potty break.  A clean, brushed coat is advised.  Creating a therapeutic plan for your dog is achieved by answering a health history/lifestyle questionnaire before the first session.

How long is the session?

 The sessions can vary in length of time according to your dog.  A full body massage usually takes 20-30 minutes. 

What happens?

Your dog will be massaged according to their individual needs.  The session takes place on a comfortable, clean mat and is a time of dedicated bodywork for your dog. The therapist maintains focused awareness of anatomical needs and corresponding responses from your dog.

Post Massage Recommendations

Provide fresh water to flush lactic acid that was released during the massage.


Take a brief walk for post massage stretching and urination.


Allow rest time after the massage.
