Always pet with a purpose,
Canine Massage Theory and Techniques Course
Every massage move is demonstrated in a video for you to watch and practice as many times as you wish. You will use the one-handed effleurage move or the 'petting with a purpose' stroke in every massage you perform. Try one-handed effleurage to relax your dog.
You do not put your hands on a dog for some moves. Active stretches require the pup to do the work while you entice him with a treat. The nose to toes move stretches the muscles of the back to relax and strengthen them. While your dog plays a game to receive a treat he reduces muscle tension, improves circulation, and increases flexibility. See if your dog likes this stretch.
