Overview

A Dog Lover's Guide to Canine Massage by Jody Chiquoine, Linda Jackson

A Dog Lover's Guide to Canine Massage is a practical workbook designed for all dog lovers, as well as professionals - veterinarians, groomers, kennel and shelter operators, trainers, etc. - and dogs of all ages, sizes, and conditions. Fully illustrated with more than 100 photographs, it provides a strong foundation in massage technique, canine anatomy, as well as the how-to's, what-for's, and why not's. If you've ever had a massage you know how much better it makes you feel. The benefits of canine massage are about the same.for you and your 4-legged friends. Massage can help your dog relax, decrease chronic pain, speed up recovery from injuries, and help condition a working or competitive dog. Each chapter includes short exercises that help the reader build their knowledge and confidence experientially, not just theoretically. You'll learn what to look for before, during and after massage; why certain techniques are better than others for particular conditions such as arthritis; and how easily you can incorporate massage into the daily life of your canine companion.
