Why Learn to Give Your Dog a Relaxation Massage? … a massage is much more than just “petting your dog.”
“Petting” is done unconsciously …. “massage” is done with “focus” on what you are doing … what you are hoping "not to find" on your dog: hot or cold areas on your pet, bumps, lumps, tight muscles, etc.
Swimming is the perfect activity for all dogs young or old. It provides a non-weight bearing activity that avoids all the stresses and strains of exercising on hard ground.
The swimming action benefits the dog's heart and lungs because the weight of the water requires your dog to put forth more effort to breathe. Swimming will also strengthen your dog’s muscles without risking further injury.
