When animals take work and play to the highest level they are both pet and performance athlete. Animals trying to raise their level of fitness or improve proficiency of movement can benefit from adding a Performance Massage plan to compliment their current training regimen. Ensuring consistently high level performance from animals in competition requires a balance of prime nutrition and training, adequate recovery time, mental stability and soundness of conformation.
Structural alteration through breeding can be extreme. The steeply sloped hip of the German Shepherd or the characteristically long spinal column of the Daschund can put undue stress on skeletal structures and surrounding muscle tissue. A Performance Massage program can address unsound postural habits and compensation of movement developed from physical imbalances to prevent injury.
