Getting started & what to expect.

1

Get a hold of us - tell us about you & your dog!

Prepare for your dog's first massage.

We travel to your dog's home where he / she is most comfortable, but there's also a few things that we recommend you do to help make things as happy and stress-free as possible.

  • Make sure your dog has had sufficient water for the day and it has been at least 30 minutes since their last meal.
  • They should have a bathroom break prior to the session.
  • There should be a quiet comfortable space to do the massage, free of other pets, noises, aromas and other distractions.

The initial massage session & consultation.

We'll discuss your dog's medical history and conduct a thorough assessment and an introductory evaluative massage.

We will discuss your dog's medical history:

  • Veterinary Physician
  • Current medications
  • Health conditions (allergies, diseases, arthritis, recent / past injuries or surgeries)

We will evaluate your dog's behavioral and physical condition:

  • Demeanor - aggressive / timid / high anxiety
  • Gait analysis - observe movement / posture - look for issues
  • Palpation of tissues - look for issues

Designing a plan to suit your dog's specific needs.

Once we have conducted a thorough evaluation, we can determine what procedures and scheduling work best for you and your dog.

We'll assemble a custom tailored combination of massage techniques to promote the total health and wellness needs of your dog.

We'll discuss the recommended frequency of sessions (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc.), and work with you around your schedule.
