"My dog loves it!" Purchased on Mighty Ape

My dog is one of those ccrraaaazzzzyyyy border collies – she lives life hard out (particularly on agility courses) but that does cause problems. I bought this book for the stretches etc to assist her in maintaining mobility as she is still young and 'cause it's great just watching her fly enjoying herself. I've never done this type of body work with my dog before, but it is clearly written and with good illustrations/pho­tos. The stretches work and she loves the massage that I give her through stretching and rubbing – so much so that at night, she carries the book to me so that I can work with it close by.

Description

Read Raquel Wynn's posts on the Penguin Blog. A holistic trainer and physical therapist tells dog lovers how to keep their pets healthy for a long and happy life. Dogs' lives are high impact--playing, chasing, begging, walking. Just like people, they experience joint degeneration, muscle pain, stress, and general body breakdown. In Stretch Your Dog Healthy holistic health specialist Raquel Wynn offers dog owners the latest information on stretching, massage, acupressure, and other techniques to improve and maintain their dogs' good health, enhance calm energy, and strengthen the pet--owner bond. The natural treatments in this book suggest preventive care and offer an alternative to expensive prescriptions for day-to-day ailments, including such chronic problems as hip dysplasia. The stretching routines that form the centerpiece of the book are clearly explained and accompanied by photos of dogs and owners demonstrating the poses. Raquel Wynn's stretching and massage techniques have been shown to drastically improve dogs' daily well-being in addition to overall health and life expectancy. What better way to treat man's best friend?
