After reading the reviews of this book I expected it to have detailed, informative illustrations/photos & instructions to explain how to massage and stretch out your dog. There are plenty of illustrations, more than expected, but they don't really provide much insight or specifics on how to give my pet an effective stretching or massage session. I took the book with me to agility class and asked the instructor to look through the book and indicate which of the stretches in the book she would recommend, and only a few of the stretches she had suggested to us were included. Those stretches are great, but what was disturbing is that she warned against doing a few of the stretches in the book for fear of causing future problems. So I would caution you to have the vet or another professional look over the stretches included and recommend which are truly beneficial for your dog. For the stretches that are good, the book is helpful to help you remember what you need to do after having been shown the exercises.
