O.K. So I'm the one with the bad back with 2 herniated discs. But last night, I learned to give Maddie a massage! How spoiled is she!! Our last agility session has finished for the holidays, and we had a potluck party. The instructor taught us how to find inflammation in our dogs, muscle spasms, etc. and to massage them. I was surprised to find out that the total massage process takes 45 minutes at least. Of course, Maddie loved it, but by the time I got back up off the floor, my back was killing me. So I guess I'm an official "havanese spoiler" now (like I wasn't before), hee, hee.
I really wish I had known the technique before when my prior Hav was so sick. It might have helped her to relax. Has anyone given their dog a massage before?
