Helen’s tips for massaging your own dog
Pick your moment, ensuring it’s at least one hour after feeding time to allow for digestion, and your dog has relieved itself. Make the environment comfy – use a favourite mat or bed, placed on the floor or your lap.
Be calm and gentle – less is more. Place two fingers on your eyelid over your eyeball – that is the level of pressure to use
on your dog.
Go with the flow of blood, from the heart out to the extremities
and back again.
Always watch for feedback and ensure your dog is willing –
don’t force or restrain it.
