Holistic Dog: Dog Stretches

Helping your dog stretch, or even massaging him isn’t a luxury; there are actually many health benefits for him. For older dogs it can help with arthritis, with dogs that are sports driven will prevent injury, and for all dogs it will improve health. You can easily massage or encourage your dog to stretch while watching TV.

Here is an easy stretch:

Place your dog on his back and begin to rub his belly.

Move our hands in slow strides up and down the belly. As your dog begins to relax start move your strokes longer so that your hands go down his hind legs. Usually dogs will begin to lengthen out their legs. Begin to slowly stroke the hind legs encouraging a stretch.
