Dog’s Reaction To Christmas Ad Makes Us Jump For Joy

<i>A relaxing session with a client named Doug da Pug.</i><br><br>Massage therapist Rubi Sullivan never needs to ask her clients to disrobe. But otherwise, the dogs she treats have much in common with people getting a rubdown. “They respond a lot like we do,” says Sullivan, a former preschool teacher and the owner of Heal Animal Massage in Portland, Oregon. “Some will relax, stretch out, take deep breaths. Others just yawn and fall asleep.” While sessions don’t involve candles and incense, Sullivan says a melodious soundtrack can come in handy: “Soft music helps nervous dogs calm down. I like playing piano and classical music for them&mdash;and Yo-Yo Ma.”
