Workings dogs (e.g. Seeing-Eye Dogs/Police K9s) lead a highly stressed life, although they seem to take it in their stride. For many, the signs of stress show more obviously when they are older or sickly. Working dogs have more wear and tear on their body than most house pets and are likely to have reduced life spans.
Massage for such deserving canines help their bodies return back into balance and a relaxed state after a hard day’s work. Most will have problem areas which will be addressed in massage. For those with no symptoms, massage aids in keeping their health in optimum condition as well as helping their physical body relax and their mental body rejuvenate. This may increase their life span and will definitely raise their sense of well-being.
