Canine Massage for the Athlete in Every Dog DVD is not your typical DVD. The Introductory video clip allows you to meet C. Sue Furman, Ph.D. and appreciate her laid back approach to dealing with dogs. Sue employs the Power Point slide format in the DVD to explain the benefits of Passive Touch, Compresssion, Effluerage, Petrissage, Friction, Percussion, and Stretch massage. Her audio explanations that accompany the slides describe how to perform each massage move and where and when to appropriately use it. She also includes a video of each stroke that clearly demonstrates the appropriate hand technique to accomplish the desired result. Sue even includes a video of a brief canine massage to get you started. The 3 hour DVD is packed with information, but the Menu feature makes it easy to access fundamentals about a specific category of massage moves or a specific massage stroke with a mouse click. Canine Massage for the Athlete in Every Dog DVD puts the capability to perform over 30 massage strokes in your hands. You will never pet your dog the same way once you learn canine massage.
