Rates & Such
Introduction & Evaluation - $20
This includes meeting your critter, taking information and introducing them to the massage touch. This can last from two minutes to twenty depending on the situation. This is up to the animal to decide. It's also your opportunity to ask me questions and see first hand the benefits of massage.
Regular Session - $40
This is for a standard massage session that can last from 45 minutes to and hour depending on the dog and the techniques indicated by their needs. My aim is 40 minutes uninterrupted.
Repeat & Regular Sessions - Discount Varies
NEW SPECIAL - Add a session and/or another pet in the home for just $30 per massage & pet. Many clients are finding this to be quite beneficial for their critters. Contact me for details.
RESCUE~ADOPTERS~FOSTERS - I've always offered my services free of charge to rescues and fosters but wanted to make it an official announcement. If this applies to you and you have an animal that could use some stress relief or help with recovery from anything - emotional and physical - please contact me to set it up. Thanks!
Prepare yourself and your pet for the massage:
Massaging animals is different from massaging humans. Animals dictate how long they are interested in receiving treatment - especially at the first session.
It is generally a new and different sensation, plus a new person touching them so it may take a while for them to adjust.
The ideal situation is to have a quiet area available with as few distractions as possible, and to have your pet clean and dry. This doesn't mean you have to give them a bath before I show up, but not muddy or full of burrs or something!
I am flexible as to where to do the massage, so I can be on the floor with them, or a bed, couch or even a chair - depending on the size of your pet and what they are comfortable with. I can do outside as well - in good weather - but I have found that this is usually not the best environment because there are distractions. And flys. Don't care for the flys.
