Get ready for fireworks season – Puppy Massage DVD

Puppy massage DVD

Puppy massage DVD

Fireworks season is fast approaching. We all know how stressful it can be for our dog, and therefore, for us too!

There are lots of things we can try to help with the stress. We have to work to find the best solution for the individual dog.

Our solution is massage. Donna Wills of Animal physiotherapy Ltd produced the Puppy Massage DVD to help teach owners how to do basic safe massage, in the comfort and security of thier own home. Meaning pure relaxation for both owner and dog. Great for any age, not just puppies, the techniques can be learnt young and implemented throughout life.

The fireworks season is long and intense. Our behavioural advice has all been overseen by a highly qualified behaviourist, Kris Glover, so that you will have the best chance to make this work well for your dog. We reccomend that the massage is learnt early before the fireworks begin, or simply get your dog used to it when they are not likely to be going off. Then when you are your dog are used to the process (this may not take many sessions) in anticipation of fireworks, set your home up as relaxing for your dog as possible and do your main massage time early evening, before they start, so as to put your dog in a highly relaxed state. The massage releases endorphines and seretonin, all making your dog more relaxed and less likely to react. You can enhance the environment by having relaxing music in, dog relaxaion sprays, and even some chamolime tea. The more options you use, the better it all works. Setting this all up in advance of the fireworks is important as this allows the dog to not associate these things with the impending fireworks. If you wait for fireworks, then set it up, it can make the 2 associated.

So with your home and dog relaxed, you should both be able to enjoy the night. If your dog does start to hear them, they may come to you for reassurance. Its vital you stay calm. As your dog is now used to the massage and doesnt associate it with only the bad fireworks, you can use it to add reassurance as needed and it will reinforce the calming.

We all know fireworks is hard on most dogs, and the severity of thier anxiety does vary. But if we can implement a healthy thought process to it all young in life, then it will stay that way.

So get your copy of the Puppy Massage DVD today. As featured in Crufts extra. Supported by T.V. vet Paul Manktelow MRCVS and 5 star review from the president of the British Veterinary Nursing Association, and Dogs Today magazine editor Beverly Cuddy.

Puppy love

Meet Danny! So so cute! Danny is the latest puppy to reap the rewards of dad learning to massage.

Danny's dad has witnessed the power of massage for dogs for himself, and so, when he got his new puppy he decided the first thing he was going to do (after vaccinations) was get himself the Puppy Massage DVD so that he could learn to massage Danny and make him feel calm and happy and confident with touch. He knows first hand, that this will become immensily valuble in later years too.

Keep up the good work Dad. Danny is such a lovely little pup, though he wont be little for long! It makes us so happy to see such love and care for new additions to the family.

Welcome to Percy

Hello and welcome to Percy. Well, if we're honest.....hello again to Percy! He always visited when his sister Genie used to visit.

Due to Genies physio sessions, mum has seen there would be a benefit in starting physio early in life.

She lovingly decided to kick off the therapy with a luxury massage session for his first time. Well he certainly did relax and enjoy it. He enjoyed his meal of steamed chicken, washed rice and peas, with a tumeric dust. Yummy! The environment is especially relaxing with classical music playing and a calming spray atomismized into the air. Mum also enjoyed it. Mum even brought the new pup along to watch too and he fell asleep too! Lovely.

I look forward to seeing you again Percy. He's doing great, but its a good idea to keep a close eye in mobility as things sneek up in you.
