June 22, 2015 - On June 17 we were fortunate to have Jerry Hess, a canine and equine massage therapist, present an in-servide to our members. He worked on Hailey at this session and on Wolfie a few weeks earlier. Both owners saw improvements in their dogs after the sessions. For more information on Jerry and the work he does you may visit his web site, or contact him via e-mail or phone (210-251-6732).
