Q: I massage my dog at home--why should I pay you to do it?
A: I am trained in PetMassage and techniques that really communicate with the body. I am a trained professional just like a human masseuse. Is getting a massage at home from your significant other the same as going to get a professional massage? No. It's the same for Fido. However, what you do IS important. Just like humans, dogs need touch. You're a big part of that. I just further that touch in a more complex way.
