A Dog Lover's Guide to Canine Massage
There are so many reasons that putting your hands on your dog in a meaningful way can enhance your relationship with her while giving you both pleasure. This book is a valuable tool in learning how to give massage to an older dog with arthritis or other physical compromise, to a dog after surgery, for a competition dog who pushes his body to the "max," and even for a dog who is just the family pet with no special physical needs but who will greatly appreciate the special one-on-one time with you. All these dogs and their different physical situations are addressed by this wonderful workbook, which has clear explanations and even more helpful photographs to guide you through how to touch each part of your dog's body. This book will teach you and guide you in how to use your hands on your dog to release tension, promote healing, increase overall health and most of all to enhance that loving bond you have with your dog that is greater than words can describe. There is no better way to express your appreciation and devotion to your pooch than by following the advice in this much-needed book.

New Illustrated Workbook Teaches Professional Therapeutic Techniques

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. What’s more, massage can allow you to relax and strengthen the bond between you and your canine companions.

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 and diagrams, the book provides a strong foundation in massage technique, canine anatomy, and a solid grounding in the how-to’s, what-for’s, and why not’s.

A Dog Loverís 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 dogís body and needs. Each chapter includes short exercises that help the reader build their knowledge and confidence experientially, not just theoretically. Youíll 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 your canine companionís daily life.

A Dog Lover’s Guide to Canine Massage will be available from this website, bookstores, pet shops, veterinarians, pet groomers, and directly from the publisher. If you are interested in bulk discounts or consignment orders, please contact Satya House Publications for details.
