What's good for humans sometimes proves the same for their canine friends, and dog lovers have started experimenting with herbal treatments to improve their pets' well-being.

"Your beloved dogs should feel relaxed when you wrap them in a towel soaked in herbal water," an instructor from the Japan Dog Holistic Care Association said during a recent promotional event at a Tokyo dog cafe.

The Tokyo-based organization said that the practice is designed to improve dogs' quality of life by using 12 herbs, such as marigold, horsetail, St. John's wort and rosemary, and enhancing communication between owners and their pets.
