Teaching Old Dogs New Tricks

swim dogIf you are over the age of 40 or 50, you have likely realized that with age comes not only wisdom, but also aches and pains.  Your dog might begin to experience the same trouble as he or she ages.  What to do?  Why not take the dog to a spa?

Here in Canton, a new business called Healing Waters Canine Experience has just opened. They offer play time in a heated pool, as well as massage services.  To boost the bottom line, they also open up the pool for birthday parties for your dog.

Area veterinarians are referring their patients for hydrothermal massage sessions to help dogs prepare and rehab from joint surgery, as well as to lose weight or to build muscle for various competitions. Some clients even come to prepare their dogs for my favorite sport, dock diving.

Although the dog’s family is not allowed in the pool, there is a camera that feeds video of the session to the waiting room.
