There is something in the air. The chill of winter is giving-way to softer, warmer days. Dogs are happy to be outside watching their world come alive again with birds, squirrels and leaves. You can watch your dog is starting to stretch and strengthen their legs as if they know in their being what the physical demands of the new season will bring.
Younger dogs get out there and energetically move their bodies and start the building of muscle, enhancing the flexibility of tendons and ligament while their lubricating joints. Keep in mind, the more senior the dog, the more support an encouragement we need to offer in preparation for spring and summer to come.
As you gradually and consistently increase the dog’s exercise level, you can combine it with an acupressure session to have the optimal effect for his physical well-being. Remember to work with your dogs on uneven terrain so that they build rounded muscles and tendons that are suited for the activities they will be encountering over the summer.
A Spring Warm-up Acupressure Session can be used for any age dog, though they are especially good for older dogs to enhance the suppleness of their tendons, ligaments and muscles. These sessions will help avoid early-season injuries while the dog is building his strength. You and your dog can enjoy the spring with all its promise of healthy, active months of fun.
