Relaxing caresses

Dogs also get stressed . Relaxing caresses can help them relieve all kinds of tension, control their anxiety and hyperactivity, and provide them with a dose of happiness, the most basic medicine of all. In just 10 minutes a day you can give your puppy a “maintenance” of relaxing caresses.

Recent studies have shown that although puppies appreciate physical contact with us, it may happen that the way we pet them is not the right one and for them it is a bit aggressive and yet we believe that we are being as subtle as possible. If you want to relax a dog, avoid tickling, spanking or squeezing .

If you enjoy caring for your dog, it will be good to learn the best way to do it and help you relax after a long journey or, on the other hand, to start the day well. Many people prefer to do it before going to bed, while others do it first thing in the morning. The result is the same and for dogs it’s the same.

First steps

Start caring for your dog to relax overall. Use the fingers and the palm of your hand , relaxed but firm, to touch the whole body of your dog very slowly. Ride from head to tail. Be sure to put all your attention and energy into it and focus on all layers, from the fur, through the skin, to the muscle and finally to the bone.

Stop and make circular movements when passing through the areas of the ears, under the chin, neck, armpits and chest. You can do this while your dog gets sun or after a good walk, the effect will be better. You can do it in the park but as we mentioned before, after the joke and walk. Otherwise, he will not even listen. However, everything will depend on the dog and the time you have. Other people people prefer to do so before leaving home while enjoying breakfast. The dog slept all night and although he was awake, he had not been stimulated yet. With this, we help the dog to learn that he can relax even when he is not tired.

Pet your dog to calm the nerves

If you are very nervous about something that has happened, relaxing caresses can help you reduce stress and divert your attention. In this case, what we do is relax the nervous system with our approach . Rest your palm slightly on the head or neck of your dog. As we explained earlier, but this time non-stop in a particular zone, make long and slow passageways along the spine. Repeat several times and if you notice that your dog feels comfortable with this type of contact, gradually increase the pressure. Avoid pressing the lower part of your back.

Your attitude while performing these caresses to calm your dog should be waking up to what you want to achieve, that is, a relaxed and neutral position. As a finishing touch, rest for a few minutes one hand at the base of your dog’s head and the other at the base of the pelvis. These two zones control the body’s relaxation responses and other important functions in the body such as: digestion, sleep and tissue repair. With this imposition we want to reactivate the positive flow of the actions of the spinal cord.

Relaxation in the paws

There is nothing better than stretching to relax. The paws area is an area that we tend to neglect, however it is one of the keys to the relaxation of a dog. Remember that like all creatures, a dog maintains all its weight and movements on all four legs, so these tend to be filled with tension , even to the dog’s tiredness.

Start caressing your dog to relax the paws and do not forget the area of ​​the buttocks and thighs, rub them before stretching any area. Then begin by stretching your paws, catching them from the back and then moving your joints. Go through every inch of your paws from above and, grasp with your hand, apply a light pressure and then relax and continue. Remember not to be aggressive , firm but gentle. Less is more. The dogs’ paws are strong but not invincible.

Lastly, hold your dog at the hip and lift your paws behind, this will benefit the stretching and relaxation of your spine.

Try caressing your dog to relax by following all our indications and tell us the result.
