WOOOOOOOOW!!! That REALLY shows how he is working that balance “board”! I’ve not seen ANYTHING demonstrate it that well!
And he is rocking to the beat of the music perfectly!!!
Just curious how long and how any repetitions a day.
Informative AND fun! THANKS!!
Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!
We love strollers for Tripawds! They are so helpful when you want to get out and about.
Check out our latest Stroller Review, courtesy of Sandy:
Slippery floors are one of the scariest parts of a Tripawd’s life, which is why we’re always looking for better ways to add traction to slick surfaces. If you’re tired of placing no-slip throw rugs everywhere, check out this new indoor traction decal called “Puppy Treads™,” by Handi-Ramp®, the world’s oldest ramp manufacturing company.
Pressure sores on metacarpal pads are common for Tripawd dogs. Here’s one way you can deal with ’em:
Here’s a great (and portable!) way to exercise your Tripawd:
But use care when using treats during exercise! We love Dr. Harvey’s Sweet Potater’s for a low-cal way to bribe Wyatt into standing on the Paw Pods.
We really like this easy mod to the Ruffwear Doubleback harness . Now rear leggers can wear it too, provided they have at least some stump remaining. Check it out!
I found that by placing a carabiner or s-clip between the two leg straps, above the base of his tail, he was able to keep the leg strap on even when running all-out.
Ruffwear’s done it again! Here’s why we love the Front Range harness for small and toy breed Tripawds
For small Tripawds with a girth size under 22″, the Ruffwear Front Range harness is perfect. It’s not as heavy-duty as the Webmaster or the EzyDog Tripawd Convert harness, which are great for larger, heavier dogs — but sometimes too much harness for the daintiest Tripawds.
It’s ideal for walking a small breed Tripawd dog. READ MORE HERE.
