Kinesiology taping on humans is now commonplace: it is widely used by physical therapists, chiropractors and personal trainers. The idea behind taping is that it provides incredible support and stabilisation of ligaments and tendons while simultaneously stretching and flexing like a “second skin”, allowing for a rull range of motion. It can also activate or relax muscles, depending on its application.

Taping is now also being successfully applied to other animals. Canine and equine physiotherapist Katja Bredlau-Morich, author of Kinesiology Taping for Horses, is a pioneer in bringing the method to the dog world. She believes that dogs can benefit hugely from taping techniques and, even better, dog owners and trainers can learn practical steps to using kinesiology tape themselves.

In her terrific guidebook, Bredlau-Morich provides the ultimate reference for understanding both the uses of kinesiology tape and its numerous canine applications. With hundreds of colour photographs and step-by-step instructions for to do it yourself, her book explains the following forms of kinesiology taping:

  • Muscle
  • Scar
  • Fascia

In addition, numerous case studies demonstrate how taping can change a dog's life, keeping him a happy, active and pain-free companion for years to come.
