Canine Massage Services

Providing Canine Massage services for injured dogs, ageing dogs and dogs with orthopaedic conditions such as hip dysplasia, arthritis and spondylosis. It can also be helpful for dogs who have had operations or spent time on crate rest. Also nervous and anxious dogs. I always work with your dog with care and compassion, at a pace that they are comfortable with.

Details of some of the types of condition that Canine Massage Therapy can help are on the Canine Massage page and in my Blog.

The length and price of each session depends whether it is the first time I’ve met you and your dog, and how far you are from Whiteley, PO15 7NJ.

There is more information to help you understand what is involved in my two articles, before your first appointment and what to expect at the first appointment. 

Please also review the Terms and Conditions of service which includes cancellation terms. 


Download a vet consent form

I abide by the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 and Exemptions Order 2015. Because of this, I never work on an animal without vet consent.

After downloading the form, you will need to fill in the top third with your details and your dogs details. You will then need to give the form to your vet to complete the bottom part of the form. I cannot massage your dog without a fully completed form signed by you and your vet.

Initial consultation and massage session

Up to 90 minutes duration.

At the initial session we start by reviewing the veterinary consent form. Then I take a medical and lifestyle history for your dog. This also gives your dog some time to start to get used to me. Followed by a gait and postural analysis and palpation. This is then followed by a canine massage session with aftercare advice given.


Price – £40.00. Appointments are in your home, provided it is within 10 miles of Whiteley (PO15 7NJ).

Additional charges apply for longer distances where these can be accommodated, I will confirm these at the time of booking.


Subsequent massage sessions

Up to 60 minutes duration.

Later sessions start by discussing the results of the last session with you. I also check with you that there have been no changes since we last met. Then I do the palpation and a full canine massage session, again with aftercare advice given.


Price – £40.00. At your home provided it is within 10 miles of Whiteley (PO15 7NJ).

There are additional charges for longer distances. I will confirm these at the time of booking.

Interested in finding out whether massage can help your dog to feel more comfortable?


Because dogs are usually more comfortable with familiar surroundings, I offer canine massage therapy across Hampshire with home visits where I come to you.

I mainly cover the area of Hampshire around Whiteley. So spanning Southampton, Fareham, Portsmouth, Bishops Waltham and Waterlooville and all areas in between. I may also travel outside this area, but appointments for longer distances are limited availability. There is an additional mileage charge for travelling appointments over ten miles from PO15 7NJ, which will be discussed at the time of booking.

If I don’t cover your area, and you cannot get to me, check out the therapists register,, as there is probably a Guild therapist in your area. Take a look at my entry on the register whilst you are there!


Thank you for making Alfie more comfortable. I think he feels a bit looser, no grunting when he stands and sits, just loud snoring to cope with now, and he is walking more confidently.
