This is a practical workbook designed for all dog lovers, as well as professionals — veterinary surgeons, groomers, kennel and shelter operators, trainers, etc. – and dogs of all ages, sizes, and conditions. This month K9 Magazine are offering 5 lucky readers the chance to win their very own copy of A Dog Lover’s Guide To Canine Massage written by Jody Chiquoine, Linda Jackson and published by Satya House Publications.
Readers will learn from this fully illustrated book which features more than 100 photographs, it provides a strong foundation in massage technique, canine anatomy, as well as the how-to’s, what-for’s, and why not’s. 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. Each chapter includes short exercises that help the reader build their knowledge and confidence experientially, not just theoretically. You’ll 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 the daily life of your canine companion.
