Rusty, a dog massage success case

Rusty is a nine-year-old Australian shepherd who had no obvious health problems at all. He had stopped jumping on the bed and was having trouble getting in the car but the owners attributed that to his getting older. He began receiving massages as a treat. The results surprised his owners. He began jumping on the bed regularly and flying into the car. He also became less aggressive with other dogs. He was more willing to play then he ever had been before and he often initiated the play with his younger beagle brother. Rusty’s physical and mental changes were a delight and an added bonus to the feel good experience. Rusty
