Spinal Release Massage

Purpose – releasing the fascia along the neck and spine. 

Placement of reward – For this I often place a container in front for them to focus on and reward them sometimes. 

Training Tips – Done with slow firm pressure. Not too hard though. You can see in the video the dogs get fidgety at certain spots and they are their tighter areas. Just wait patiently and your hand will eventually move again through those parts. You will likely notice it gets a bit stuck there. You can see I have to hold Brill a bit to stop him leaving. I know he is ok with me doing that but for some dogs they may hate that you are forcing them to stay. So just train bits of it and work up to it.
