Think massage and you probably envision having your back muscles unknotted by a professional masseuse. You may not think about massage in relation to your dog.

Next time you pet your dog in this way, notice how it seems to calm him, and how much he enjoys it. Now imagine how true massage might benefit his overall health and well being.
