Giving your dog a paw massage is similar to giving a human a foot or hand massage. It will relax your dog, improve the blood circulation, and give you some time to check your pet’s paws for any abnormalities. Follow these detailed instructions to give your dog an enjoyable paw massage.

8. Chest

The area where the head and neck connect is where the parasympathetic nervous system is located, so massaging this area may have a calming effect.

This video will give you a hint on how to perform the proper massage movements.
