The fact that you’re here shows that you’re committed to your dog’s health and wellbeing. This guide will provide you with valuable knowledge and skills to help you keep your dog healthy and fit. While acupressure works best when started early in the disease process, it’s also an amazing tool to alleviate chronic pain in dogs suffering from arthritis, muscle tightness, or many other conditions.
This guide is designed for dog owners who want to support their pet’s healing across a range of disorders — not only from painful ailments like arthritis but also for many other chronic issues, like allergies.
Importantly, this is not a replacement for thorough assessment and treatment carried out by a veterinarian. Neither is this a substitute for seeing a qualified veterinary acupuncturist. Rather, this guide bridges the gap between acupuncture sessions and enhances conventional veterinary therapies. Our goal is to give you an additional powerful tool to promote healing in your dog and improve their quality of life.
Practise. Practise. Practise.
The key to success in acupressure is time and repetition.
As a beginner in acupressure, it can be hard to locate the correct acupuncture points. But after a while, you’ll build up your confidence. You’ll start to “see with your fingers” and begin reading your dog’s response to your touch. In fact, dogs will actually help you by letting you know what they enjoy and what they don’t.
The secret is: Don’t give up, keep practising!

How often should I treat my dog?
The best results are achieved by treating your dog regularly. Many dog parents make it their habit to treat their furry companion a few minutes per day. You’ll be surprised how much you’ll achieve by just spending 5-10 extra minutes with your dog each day!
