I have been working with 11 year old border terrier “Oreo” for about 4 months now. She had a torn ACL and a partially torn medial meniscus and was about a month post surgery when I first met her.
She was hobbling and and her strength and mobility were very limited.
I am so proud of her progress: Look at her gait now!
Here you can see her standing on a BOSU ball with her hind legs while balancing on a FitPaws
Peanut with her front paws. The best thing is: She is having tremendous fun while working out
I love teaching dogs fun “tricks” and skills to keep them mentally stimulated.
Here is little Will who learned to get into a box in one short lesson. Admittedly he knows “settle” and “go to bed”, so hopping into a box is somewhat related. But he was scared of the box when I first presented it.
