Dog massage is based on similar techniques as massage on humans. More than just caressing. Targeted treatment for diseases and can also play a major role in prevention. I use Swedish massage techniques on the dogs. I perform the massage according to the dog's needs. If he can’t or wants to stay in the same position all the time, no problem. But after a couple of times usually the dog gets used to it and can even fall asleep during the massge because it can be so good for him.
