I hope you are all enjoying these silly little exercises to bond with your pet. If you don't have a Labrador yet, maybe you can borrow a neighbor's dog or just make a mental note and try these in the future. A dog -especially a Lab- really does add so much joy to life! Just by seeing their kind eyes and wagging tail my day is made a little brighter. I hope you can someday experience the same...
#10. THE WHITE GLOVE MASSAGE
"For a simple variation on more standard massages, try your usual process with a pair of white socks on your hands. The sensation is quite different for the dog because you are covering much more surface area with each stroke, and because your hands look funny with socks on them."
