It can sometimes be hard to tell if your dog is under a lot of stress. Some tell-tale signs of a stressed-out dog include shaking, jitters, and general lethargic behavior. Even if your dog simply has arthritis, they can get down about their lack of mobility. One of the best things you can do to take care of your dog during this season is to give them regular massages. A dog massage isn’t too hard or time-consuming, and it provides a great opportunity for you to bond with your furry friend.
In this video, we will learn how to give your dog the perfect massage to relieve stress and body aches.
Dog massages work perfectly fine if your pet is lying down. When your dog is resting or just taking a break, give them pets and snuggles along with a light muscle massage. Start off with a very light pressure, petting them from the tip of their head right down the middle to the end of their tail. After this, gently rub your dog all over, especially behind the ears. These techniques are not only good for keeping your dog’s muscles relaxed and healthy. These techniques also help a dog relax during a thunderstorm. The next time your dog is anxious, try massage!
