3. Ruff Rubs Canine Massage Therapy, LLC
- Serves Jacksonville Beach, FL
"Ruff Rubs is commendable for a lot of reasons. First is convenience: Ruff Rubs will come to you and massage your dog in his/her own environment where the pooch feels most comfortable. Second is quality: Betty is a certified canine massage therapist, and is good at what she does. Our chihuahua likes her and melts under her hands. She can evaluate small starting issues such as sore spots or areas where your dog holds tension so problems can be treated before they begin. She even does a video evaluation to diagnose gait. Third is value: Ruff Rubs is priced competitively with similar services, but charges in a smaller increment, ie priced for a half hour instead of the 45 min or hour booked by competitors. That allows the flexibility to choose to have two sessions spread out over a couple of weeks for the same price as one session elsewhere, or book a double session if you wanted it longer - still costs the same as the 1 hour competitor - or perhaps book a half hour session for two dogs instead of an hour for one. Same price!
The absolute best thing about Ruff Rubs, a quality which transcends all the rest, is compassion. Betty doesn't see Ruff Rubs as just a job: her business is a passion. She truly loves animals and she's there to bond with your pet. I consider that my chihuahua has a friend in Betty.
Betty has a magic in her hands, a way that connects and reassures, that whisperes to your pet that it's okay to let go, to release guards and cares, to relax and let her in, let her heal."
