A Dog Lover's Guide to Canine Massage is a practical workbook designed
for all dog lovers, and dogs of all ages, sizes and conditions. Fully
illustrated with more than 100 photographs, the book provides a strong
foundation in canine massage technique. A Dog Lover's Guide to Canine
Massage includes an easy-to-understand section on canine anatomy from
head to tail with useful charts and anatomical labels geared toward
teaching the everyday pet owner about their dog's body and needs. Each
chapter includes short exercises that help the reader build their
knowledge and confidence experientially, not just theoretically. You
know how much better a massage 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 recovery
from injuries, help condition a working or competitive dog, and
strengthen the bond between you and your canine companions. The authors
have a wealth of experience and expertise that made them uniquely
qualified to create this easy-to-use workbook. Linda Jackson, Lic.Ac,
