MYOFUNCTIONAL THERAPY (MASSAGE):


Remedial | Maintenance | Sports | Post-injury | Post-surgery | Relaxation

Myofunctional Therapy is professional dog massage and movement which is designed to improve the health and well-being of the dog by working with their muscles using different techniques that are specifically designed to the canine anatomy. Massage works with the muscles of the dogs’ body to release pressure, relax and improve range of motion. Massage is beneficial for any dog, not just for specific issues, but for general well-being. It can help many dogs with different needs. Myofunctional Therapy also includes stretches of the whole body, and different exercises.

    ENRICHMENT DOG WALKS:



    Enriching | Active | Fun | Sense stimulating | Social | Safe

    Enriching group dog walks, an hours walk around nature, stimulating their senses. We provide training along the way to ensure your dog is safe on their walk and can have optimal fun.
    At K9 Max we believe one of the most beneficial activities for dogs is to go for a walk in natural surroundings, whether it’s the beach or forest. For a dog to be free to smell and socialise with other dogs is so enriching for them. Pick-up and drop-off from your home is provided. Our van is specially equipped for canine travel and has washdown facilities. Currently servicing Beachlands & Maraetai.
