My mom really likes the posts on Tripawds.com about physical therapy ideas to do at home, because she really wants to help me get and stay strong and knows that my daily walks are not enough. Even though I try to tell her over and over that my wrestling with my pack members is all I need, she doesn’t believe me.
My mom was really excited about finding a local certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist via the post http://downloads.tripawds.com/2013/03/07/conservative-management-alternative-to-leg-knee-and-hip-surgeries-for-tripawds/ . The CCRT she found will come to our house and make up a plan for me to get stronger, he uses the equipment that we have here.
Since I don’t like walking on the couch cushions, and couch cushions are a great idea for an unstable surface to walk on to increase my core strength. I would much rather lay on the couch cushions, she found these dog beds (well really a friend found them for us) and my mom got some and has practiced with me walking across them. I do like them better than couch cushions, but after taking a couple trips over the dog beds, I decided to take a break and lay on them also!
