Canine Massage Therapy

Canine Massage Therapy isn't a very common practise in Canada yet, and very few reputable schools exist in Canada for one to become certified in such field. It is important to find someone who is actually certified when it comes to handling your pet. Our Canine Massage Therapist wanted to make sure she had the credentials in order to help both owner and pet feel the most comfortable in her care. She completed her schooling from the International College of Canines Studies through a program based in Ontario. A Canine Massage Therapist is an animal health professional who has knowledge of animal behaviour, anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and deep tissue massage techniques. These skills are used to improve a dog's physical and mental well-being.

 

*Canine Massage Therapy should not be a replacement for veterinary care. When used in combination with veterinary care, Massage Therapy can help with a number of conditions. Not only will Massage Therapy help maintain your pup's health and wellness, but it can promote recovery of illness, injury, or surgery as well. In some cases, vet approval should be sought before massage therapy is applied.* (For more information, please browse the other tabs in the Canine Massage Therapy section)

 

For Massage Therapy, we provide a separate area that is a sanitary and safe place for your pup away from the distraction of others. It is a comfortable temperature for your pup, with a non-slip mat and comfy massage station positioned for the convenience of your pup's height. We also have polar fleece in various colours to provide Colour Therapy, and the essentials needed for Hydrotherapy as well. Whether you want a luxury treatment for your pup, or regular maintenance, or your pup has a serious injury that requires different help than a vet can provide, we are here for you and your pup. We are here for preventing future injuries and for fixing any present ones. A healthy pup is a happy pup!

Certified Canine Massage Therapist, Sam Hart

“I know what it's like to be busy with everything life gives you in a day. I also know what it's like to have a furry family member who has needs that are juggled with the busy levels of life. I wanted to provide a safe place during the day where your fur-baby can feel at home while being away from home.”

"I've had a desire to help animals all my life, and an intuition with them that isn't really explainable. A wise woman sent me in the right direction so I could utilize my gifts and my education. So here I am to help as many canines (and their people) as I can."
