Ivy's a typical bouncy golden retriever pup that happens to be in training as a service dog. Her Mom said she was WAY to hyper to remain still for a massage, especially during a public event with lots of music, people and dogs. Ivy was softly snoring 10 minutes into her massage!

Herbie has no idea he's a 5 lb. senior dog. He has the heart of a young pup, and a "big dog" personality!
Underneath Braxton's impressive, muscular build is a SUPER sweet and gentle dog. He was a bit nervous at our first meeting so his Mom sat right down on the floor next to us, to softly reassure him. I'm moved on a daily basis by the love I witness between dogs and their humans.
Possibly one of the most soulful dogs I've ever met. An absolute beauty, who through no fault of her own, is overwhelmed by life. With canine massage and endless love and patience from her Mom, Ella is gaining confidence, and occasionally allowing herself to be silly & carefree.
