Re: ACL: 11 months post Surgery and it retears?

Oh he was on rest for 4 months before I let him to any real activity, and I just started over the past month working him again, little runs, flirt pole a little, and his springpole. I just figured 11 months, he should be fine. So annoying. He has a Vet appt. tomorrow morning. His knee is swollen tod...

ACL: 11 months post Surgery and it retears?

Ok, Nubs had Traditional Surgery on his torn ACL 11 months ago, it has never been quite right, but he seemed to adapted well to it. Vet said all was fine, that everything looked good, nothing to worry about. Thursday night, after Nubs was out with the puppy playing, he wasn't putting any weight on t...

Re: Heads Up UKC weight pullers...

Opinions on APA? I know there are some APA pulls up here and I've heard nothing but good things about them. I know that's what most of us weight pullers are turning to up here in Michigan. It was nice having the UKC doing WPs because there was one to two a month up here, with in a 2 hour drive. APA...

Re: 9 lbs. CHIHUAHUA pulling 900+ lbs

This is one of the most recent. A Besenji 280% pulled by Roxi. Owned by Kelli Harmon. (photo by Scott Brown) [/quote] Kelli's Basenji's are awesome on the track (and make great cuddlers as well). !!!! While watching the Chihuahua video I found one of a little CHINESE CRESTED pulling 2.047 pounds! Ev...

Re: Fearful Puppy Behavior (1st time puppy owner)

Thanks for the advice so far. I've been getting her out more, she's even asking for walks now (Keep it to the streets only a block at a time) and has already improved there. Melissa I wish I could take off for a weekend and come out with you girls. Working 7 days a week is hard as heck to do and rea...

Re: Fearful Puppy Behavior (1st time puppy owner)

She is between 12-14 weeks of age according to the vet, and I've had her for 3 weeks as of today. She's come a LONG way since she came here with me. She's a whole new puppy already. She's fine meeting people outside a house or buillding, but not inside. If she meets them outside, they can come insid...

Fearful Puppy Behavior (1st time puppy owner)

Here is some background information. Peanut was found in a park heading toward a very busy road when she was picked up by a friend of mine. The first time I saw her she was scared to death of me, growled, snarled, and tried to hide in the woman that was keeping her at that time's lap to stay away fr...

New Puppy and Jets/Fireworks

A few days ago I received a message from a friend of mine asking me if I could take on a Pit Bull puppy that she found attempting to cross a BUSY intersection (6 lane road going 45+mph). I took her in and she's come a LONG way just in the past two days. While outside on a potty run, fireworks went o...

Re: CCL Post Surgery exercising

He just had a traditional done on his knee. I was going to do a water treadmill to help out, but I didn't know when I could start, and the vet office that had it was again no help. Played phone tag with their vet for about a week before I gave up. Even though I had left messages on that vets phone t...

CCL Post Surgery exercising

So it's been just shy of 6 weeks since Nubs had his surgery and he's lost most of his mussel mass in the leg that he had the surgery on. He'll put full weight on it, but it's weak and can barely hold him up. Sometimes he forgets about it and tries to life the other leg to pee and can barely keep upr...

Re: flirt pole flirt

At 5.5 months old, take it easy. No running or jogging on the streets, as it can be very very damaging to the dogs joints. Walking is fine, jogging on grass fine, jogging on cement can be very dangerous later in life. Agility you can start about a year of age as long as you do contact only no jumpin...

Re: flirt pole flirt

Making a dog jump while going after the flirt is a good way to screw up their knee's and tear CCL's. If your dog is under 2 years of age, keep jumping to a min. You don't want to hurt the growth plates and then have issues in the future. Your dog jumping on it's own is fine, but when it's running fu...

Re: Questions to ask about ACL surgery

Sorry to DP, but has anyone also done physical therapy with their dog after having the CCL surgery? There is a local office that has a water treadmill and a pool for the dogs to use, also other things to help the healing processes. I'm going to look more into it because I know teaching him how to us...
