Nickers & Wags
My name is Bobbi Rossin and I'm located in Columbus, Ohio. I'm a certified Canine Massage Therapist and Equine Sports Massage Therapist, along with being a member of the International Association of Animal Massage Therapists. I have been trained and certified by Mary Schreiber of Equissage Inc. Being a registered nurse for the past 23 years, it is important to stay current in the profession. I attend seminars and classes to maintain and advance my massage education and certification.Here we are at Wagfest 2011 where proceeds from mini dog massages went to benefit dog rescues.
Animals are an important part of my life. My house is home to rescued dogs and cats. I have two Australian Shepherds, Jasper and Cody, who compete in CPE and USDAA agility. They both benefit from sports massage after a busy day at a dog trial. I volunteer my services at the local animal shelter. These rescued, abused, and older dogs benefit greatly from therapeutic massage, which relieves stress and aches.

Equine massage has done wonders on my daughter's 18 year old Quarter horse Simon, who was having back problems. Simon was shown and ridden in trail riding, United States Pony Club, 4-H, Show Jumping, Dressage (USDF), and Eventing (USEA). Through these personal encounters I learned the benefits of therapeutic massage and decided to pursue a career in the profession
