Myotherapy massage is a non-invasive technique, which means no needles, electrical current machines, or any other invasive procedure. Myotherapy massage is done using the hand, knuckles and fingers to massage and alleviate taut muscle bands and muscular knots known as trigger point body. Light stretching is also applied once these trigger points are relieved.
By ridding the body of these taut, painful bands and knots, your canine companion can regain flexibility, strength, and endurance.
Massage and myotherapy comforts tired muscles and reduces the potential for cramping and post-exercise soreness, for the canine athlete. Massage helps prepare physically for the event and reduces the chance of injury.

Pet Therapy Prep Class
What is a Pet Therapy Dog?
Pet Therapy Teams are dogs/human teams that visit facilities with the intention of providing comfort and happiness to people. This can include adult daycares, hospitals, nursing homes, children’s libraries and rehabilitation clinics. Studies have proven that these special dogs can help aid humans by: lowering their blood pressure, decreasing pressure and anxiety, opening up communication, and assisting children with their learning skills.
In our Pet Therapy Prep class we will take the first three classes to breakdown and practice all the skills needed to pass Creature Comfort’s Pet Therapy Evaluation, and practice the skills needed to be a pet therapy dog. The fourth week will be a Pet Therapy Evaluation done by Creature Comfort which is used to qualify for pet therapy certification.
This class includes:
Familiarizing the dogs to medical equipment

Puppy Class (FREE) - Click Here To Enroll
- Presented by: Robin Lash CPDT-KA
Who can attend: Puppies 8-20 weeks with age appropriate vaccinations.
In order to socialize your puppy you must introduce anything that they will encounter in their adult life in a positive way. Why do we do it? We socialize dogs as puppies to help turn them into confident adult dogs that can be taken anywhere. Your puppy's first associations are formed at 8-18 weeks of age this is a very small window. Our puppy classes will include letting the dogs play off-leash to help puppies learn appropriate play, good bite inhibition and develop good puppy skills. Special emphasis will be paid to meeting strangers and introduction into new environments. All classes will include question and answer on common puppy problems accompanied by handouts.
