How Canine Massage Works, and How to Get Started

Canine massage is done for very similar reasons to what any human might have. They can be performed on a dog for relaxation or a variety of health and wellness related concerns.

How do we get started?

If you're interested in starting your dog in massage, here's a general outline of the process.
  • Talk to your veterinarian. He/she will contact Amy with your dog's medical history. Once Amy has received the required information about your dog, she will contact you to schedule an initial assessment appointment.
  • Assessment: Amy will perform the following at your dog's initial assessment.
    • Visual and touch-based analysis of your dog's gait, standing and sitting posture, and any problem or heated areas.
    • A light introductory massage.
  • Massage Session Duration: Sessions normally last 30 to 45 minutes, but may vary depending on your dog's tolerance and response during the session.
  • Additional Learning: Different exercises and massage strokes will be shown to you after each session, which you can perform at home.
  • Massage Session Frequency: You and your dog can come as often as you like, and Amy will make recommendations as to the frequency of your visits.
