The Relaxed Dog was started with the intent to massage dogs and improve their standard of health. The more time I have spent with people and their dogs, along with continual studies has made me realise that so many other areas of our dogs lives receive a positive reaction by including massage as a regular practice. Combined with a regular Canine Conditioning and Fitness program your best friend/s will enjoy a healthier, longer life.

Robert Ober
Founder & Manager

Hi, I'm Robert. I've always been drawn to dogs and love the way they have integrated into the family home. I like spending time with all sorts of dogs and have often been told that I've made a connection with a dog that has surprised its owners.


Balance is very important in their (or anyone's) lifestyle so I have completed various qualifications which I believe can greatly assist the work we will complete together to improve your dog's general health and lifestyles. These include;

Certified Canine Remedial Massage Therapist

Certified Canine Fitness and Conditioning Coach

Certified Animal Reiki Practitioner (Level 2 human as well)

Canine Nutrition - RAW Feeding (in progress)

I have a thirst for knowledge and am always learning new things about helping our canine friends. I am a member of several professional organizations, attend seminars, workshops and am continually studying techniques from some of the fields leading practitioners in their fields including Jonathan Rudinger, Jean-Pierre Hourdebaigt, Kyra Sundance and many others.

I am also very proud to state that I am the official canine masseur to the RSPCA's Million Paws Club (NSW), volunteering my time to pamper the dogs of their fundraising champions.
