Massage and Pet Sitting in the greater Jacksonville, Florida Area

Welcome to Ruff Rubs, a therapeutic dog massage and pet sitting business serving clients throughout the greater Jacksonville, Florida area. From Duval County, Clay county, and St. Johns County, our clients come to us because of our love for our furry four-legged friends. Ruff Rubs is made up of a team of two friends of 19 years. Their skills combine a Ph.D. in leadership/behavioral management and small business experience, along with animal science, pig farming, and business/communications sense/intense baking skills. Oh, and an undeniable love of dogs. Add to that Canine Massage Therapy training/experience and you have a thriving partnership!

We offer certified pet CPR and First Aid classes

Our desire is to improve the quality of life for those who are always there to do the same for us. As we learn more and more about our four legged friends, it is obvious that not only do they feel pain as we do, but communicate it in ways that most don't understand. We seek to understand and have the knowledge and skill through massage to help meet the needs of these precious family members. We also know that many pet parents can sense much about their dogs as they would their own children. Rich communication with our pet parents helps us know their pup faster and more deeply. Finally, we measure success on the satisfaction of our pet parents and the smiles and kisses from our pups.
Why Do I Love Millie? — Dog Walking in Jacksonville, FL

About the Book

Over 3.2 million students are bullied each year while less than 30% of boys and 40% of girls will talk to their peers about bullying by the age of 14. Unfortunately, bully victims are between 2 and 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims. Bullying and its affects cannot be ignored. A young girl, Helen, finds help where she least expects it in coping with the mean girls at school. Even though her dog Millie can't talk nor do people things, Helen finds comfort in Millie's supportive companionship and unconditional love. Sometimes, just having someone to listen quietly while we talk about life helps us to figure things out. This, in itself, can assist in building self-confidence. Dogs mirror their pet parents' feelings and can sense moods. As Helen learns, Millie is a loving and perceptive friend who brings her calm and understanding.
