Great for those dogs that aren’t ready for the class setting, but love to learn at home. Positive training methods (like all our classes). Learn to shape, capture and target behaviors. Build better communication with your furry friend. Have loads of fun while enhancing your relationship.

Canine Sports Massage TherapySue Schneider, CMT with Cricket

By Sue Schneider, Certified Massage Therapist

The Academy of Dog Training and Agility is pleased to now offer the benefits of Sports Massage Therapy to our canine athletes and partners. (You do not need to be a club member to take advantage of this service.)

Sports massage therapy is used universally as a pre-event, post-event, and maintenance therapy for animal athletes involved in all types of competition. Because this therapy has been found useful in relieving and modifying the symptoms of a variety of ailments and conditions, its benefits also extend to healing, aging, arthritic, and obese dogs.

Sue Schneider, a Certified Massage Therapist, performs these massages in a heated/air-conditioned, quiet room at the Academy, and is committed to creating a positive, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere, for your dog.

Full-body sports massage maintains healthy body balance and provides the following benefits:

  • Reduces overall body stress and therefore calms and relaxes,
  • Alleviates pain as it eases aching muscles, injured tissues, arthritis and other painful conditions,
  • Improves blood and lymph circulation and so flushes out toxins and waste,
  • Increases oxygen absorption and enhances the immune system,
  • Reduces inflammation and joint swelling, while increasing range of motion and flexibility,
  • Enhances muscle tone and prevents atrophy of inactive muscles,
  • Revitalizes and invigorates,
  • Heightens concentration and alertness,
  • Helps reduce behavioral issues,
  • Improves and maintains overall health, and so promotes longevity.


Rates and Time Commitment
A full-body massage takes approximately 60-70 minutes, will not be rushed, and should not be interrupted once started.
Each full-body massage $50.00
20% off if you schedule 2 massages within 30 days


Contact Information:
Please contact Sue Schneider at 302-540-8899

Massages are by appointment.

***Note: Massage therapy is not a replacement for medical care or standard Wellness check-ups with a veterinarian
