Canine massage benefits dogs in the same way it benefits humans. It helps to alleviate pain, strengthen the immune system and increase flexibility. Barley’s will be offering canine massage for relaxation, rehabilitation and competition (sports massage) purposes. There are many reasons to introduce your furry friend to a therapeutic massage session: Increase circulation, reduce stiffness, increase range of motion and relieve discomfort from arthritis, to name just a few. If you are interested in scheduling your pup for a massage, please contact us to discuss treatment options.
Massage: $1 per minute with a 30 minute minimum.
