Title: Senior Dog Massage for the Canine Massage Practitioner

Summary:

Massaging the senior dog can be the most gratifying part of your canine massage practice. While these dogs may have bodies that are failing them, their spirits are often brilliant, vital and with massage, can be reenergized. 

The biggest differences between the senior massage and general canine massage are what we look for in our assessment, the intensity of intention, and the profound sense of service–and appreciation–that we feel. These dogs are so willing, so committed, and so responsive, that it would be understandable if you wanted to devote your entire practice to them.
