i think i'm going to start looking around to see if there's anything like that in this area. it's such a great idea! if Lady's health can hold out, she's be perfect for it.
Yogi, i don't know - he's got the fear aggression, si it would be good for him, but i don't know about for everyone else --- plus he's become such a lab! :blink: he's just boingaboingaboinga everywhere, which is very fun to see, but ...
To be honest, I'm now kicking myself I didn't think of something like this when I first adopted her. Really. She needed a job so badly, and I just didn't have the good sense to know how to give her one. I even considered turning her over to a police dog rescue group because they retrain shepherds like Lady and ... she really needed something to do!
Unfortunately, she's really entering the geriatric phase of a doggie's life. Her latest: she's now having trouble with solid food. I'm taking her back to the vet Friday and am hoping it's nothing serious, but have been feeding her chicken stock, soft eggs and the like. I don't think it's her teeth because she's having no trouble with her beloved carrots . And it's not doggie anorexia or doggie pickiness. I think it's some geriatric thing.
That said, if she passes muster Friday, I may try it as it will definitely be good for her spirits ... which would be good for her general health.
I do know I want to do something like this with my next pup. It's just too good an idea and I know it's infinitely therapeutic!
Thanks! I do too! She had tests just a couple of months ago, and passed with flying colors, so I'm not sure what this is about. But she isn't eating her regular food, and it isn't from pickiness or anorexia or digestive problems or bad teeth. Something else is going on.
Truth is, she has a lot of trouble getting around because of her dysplasia, but I also was thinking that might be even more reason. So, we'll see ...
