Well written and nice descriptions of technique. I look forward to trying them on my 10-yr old Golden Retriever to help his hip problems.

Thank you so much. I wanted to begin massaging my fifteen year old arthriticChow Chow, but was unsure and did not want to unknowingly do any damage. This gives me the technique and method knowledge I needed to make sure I didn't harm her. Thanks again!

These are actually really good tips, I run dog agility with my border collie and I do things similar to these before every run. First I stretch her, then I rub her all over then, I stretch her out one more time. But I would recomend using these tips!!!

I am a licensed canine medical massage therapist & I teach pet first aid with the Am. Red Cross. This is wonderful to see because I know that in my practice it helps the dogs tremendously!! I love Jean-Pierre's book because it is a great reference tool. Thank you for giving out this useful info.

It's good to know something can be done to ease arthritis pain for our dogs. We love them so much and hate to see them hurt.

These tips were great! Of course a massage can be beneficial to our canine friends, just like it is to humans!

I am thrilled to see Dog Channel posting news articles about alternative treatments for pets - instead of the usual mind set of pushing medicine. Thank you Dog Channel!
