This week’s highlights at DogRelations

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.

  1. How adorable! Such manners for Nono and Sia. Very creative on the adults end.

  3. Actually my friend and website designer Kendra Dixson was the person who sent me the video. So 99% of the credit goes to her!

  4. Hee hee, well a good friend of mine forwarded it to me so the list goes on. I think it is so cute and I’m amazed at how well the dogs are behaved, although you do see a little help from the human hands so they don’t dive their noses into their dish. lol

  5. yes the dogs are great! I also liked HOW they helped the dogs by pretending it was a human “putting your chin in your hands” gesture. It is most entertaining.
