Here is what dog owners are saying about Pawsitive Touch Canine Massage
From the 2013 AAC National Championships in Leduc, Alberta:
Emma, of www.milesandemma.com, has written an in-depth account of the experience she and her dog, Miles, had with Pawsitive Touch Canine Massage. She brought her 4 year old, male Welsh Terrier to me after he had been attacked by another dog a week prior. He had been traumatized by the attack to the point that he would not leave Emma's side, nor would he sleep in his own bed. They were in Alberta for the 2013 AAC National Championships, an event in which Miles was supposed to have competed, if it were not for his injuries.
Here is a passage:
"After the massage, Miles relaxed for the first time since the attack. He went from cowering and shaking violently in the corners of my friend's home...to walking around her home exploring later that evening. I could not believe it on so many levels. I was in complete awe of Val's ability to navigate Miles' body in a way that even I am not allowed. Being a terrier, my dog can be pretty antsy about being touched for any prolonged period, and that is on a good day! She clearly knows what she is doing, and she proved to me that massage works for animals, not just humans. We went back to see Val the next day to get Miles a second massage. I would have never guessed how helpful massage would be for Miles. It ended up being truly invaluable to his recovery in every way. Because Miles walked away from the massages feeling so relaxed, his body was able focus on healing, rather than focusing on mental anxiety and physical tension."
