Reader Question: Agility and Disabilities?
Krzypuppy” Hi, I am new here! I have not had much time to read many posts but I am looking forward to reading and learning from everyone here. Due to medical problems I am forced to train my dog using a wheelchair. I was wondering if anyone here has information on the special difficulties training and showing their dogs from a wheelchair and the difficulties with directing their dog, manuevering the course etc. that using a wheelchair causes.
Kai and I hope to be able to show soon but we could definitely use some insight into training and showing with a disability.”
I do not personally have any experience with this, I’m sorry! – does anyone else have any tips for krzypuppy?
The only ideas I have to help is working on distance training, such as you can find in Leslie McDeavitt’s ‘Control Unleashed’.
