I met Julie of Paws And Effect at an agility trial in November. My Border Collie, Chaney, is very reserved around strangers. I wasn't sure if Chaney was going to accept getting a massage done on her. Julie was very patient with Chaney and had me stand right next to Chaney so Chaney wouldn't feel frightened. Chaney was a bit fidgety, but Julie worked around that and tried to help her calm down. Pretty soon, Chaney was laying down and fell asleep! You could see the contentment in her eyes as Julie worked on her. I decided that I would take Chaney to Julie again at the December agility trial and once again, Chaney was a bit fidgety at first, but shortly after, was asleep on Julie's massage table. Chaney had some tightness in one of her leg muscles so Julie worked on that leg, and showed me how to work on the leg.
