For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, The Stick is a tool used to assist with massage. I have used one for years and it helps after a long hard workout, or before a big race. You can use it on yourself or assist someone else in a massage.
When I first got my dog, I knew she’s be running with me and I did a lot of research about her physical aspects as they relate to running. I found out that massage is a great way to prevent soreness, improve physical performance and of course, enjoyment.
And so I did a little Google magic and I found that The Stick had a pet version. They sent me one to review and my dog loves it as much as I do.
Sometimes my dog can be a little quirky. She’s a border collie after all. Tonight she was running around like crazy…crazy being the important word here. I sat her down to try out the Pet Stick and she sat down right away, and got that look in her eye that she was about to fall asleep. She loved it. I finally stopped and told her she could go. She didn’t move. That’s a first for her.
And so, when I get my doggie up in the morning, I will start her day with a little Pet Stick massage, because that’s how I start my own. Then we head out the door for a run together!
