Happy Hounds Massage & Fitness - San Francisco, CA
I offer experienced, professional and effective massage services for your domestic pets, either in the comfort of your home or in my cozy Mission District studio in San Francisco.
Each session is personalized for your pets needs, taking into consideration their age, condition, body type, personality, and any instructions or recommendations that have been made by your veterinarian or other treating professionals.
I also offer personalized fitness and conditioning programs for dogs of all ages and conditions. Keeping your dog healthy and injury free through all stages of life is one of the main goals of these programs, and the fun and bonding you and your dog experience is an added benefit.
I am certified in several fields, all by accredited schools and a veterinary school. My experience of working with bodies spans several decades, and I take your animal's health and care as seriously and carefully as if they were my own.
