Did you know stretching is important for your dog is as healthy as well as your own?

If images of doggie yoga classes are flashing in your head—don’t worry—that’s not where we’re headed in this post (although, it sounds like a promising business opportunity!).

We’re talking about your working with your dog to gently stretch and massage muscles and joints to decrease pain and increase quality of life.

Here are a few benefits of stretching for dogs:

  • Decreases arthritis pain (good for dogs suffering from discomfort or used as a preventative measure).
  • Increases mobility.
  • Improves flexibility.
