Pawsitive Touch for Dogs
Looking for something new for your canine companion? Consider hydrotherapy and massage provided by local dog lover, Debbie Erb, at Pawsitive Touch for Dogs.
Massage alone has been known for many years to have a positive effect on the body, whether it is human or dog, but hydrotherapy brings things to a new level. Hydrotherapy uses water to create relaxing yet fun atmosphere, which includes an underwater treadmill. The underwater treadmill is designed for canine rehabilitation and allows dogs to begin their rehabilitation process earlier than normal. Using the natural buoyancy and resistance of the soothing warm water, the underwater treadmill creates a low-impact workout that helps the animal to increase muscle strength and endurance allowing a quicker transition to land-base therapy.
However, this is not just for dogs recovering from injury or surgery. Dogs who suffer from old age or arthritis can also greatly benefit from the comforting warm water and the ability to be able to exercise without the increased pain of their own body weight. Healthy canines have room to benefit as well because this provides a way to build and strengthen muscle without causing damage to joints over time from impact.
Benefits from Treatment Include:
- Early intervention and rehabilitation
- Possibility for quicker recovery time
- Exercise for dogs of all ages and sizes
- Helps maintain a healthy weight
- Better mental health/ increased endorphin levels
Debbie has been working with dogs for many years as a massage therapist at dog agility competitions.

Each animal is treated in the best way possible and water level is adjusted to meet every dogs specific needs.
