I bought this book when one of my dogs was diagnosed with hip dysplasia in both hips. After about a month or so of trying this massage method, she's doing much better. It's a lot easier for her to go up and down stairs, and she goes for much longer walks than she used to be able to. It has also strengthened my relationship with her and my other dogs, who I also have been using the massage method on. They now all listen to me when I say a command, and are all easier to train. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.
You're welcome! Nice cliff hanger at the end there. Can't wait to see what he dreamt about after doing spellwork all day....please continue!
