Animal-massage therapist Claudia Jahraus’s work with dogs was profiled in The Bismarck Tribune this week, and the Bismarck, North Dakota’s work was described in the article as something that helps her clients benefit greatly.

“[6-year-old bichon frise] Loki’s owner, Wendi Holz, said Loki and her other dog, Bailey, have benefited greatly from massage,” the article noted.

“‘I just wanted something for my dogs that would be healthy and good for them,'” she said.
