Teach your dog to LIMP!
This is a very hard one to teach!
with having Rover on a leash. Stand in front of him and loop the leash under
one of his forelegs, so you can elevate his wrist. Now gently pull on the
leash so that he must elevate his leg. Now call Rover to you. ROVER, COME,
LIMP. If he takes a couple steps with only three legs, praise him! Now let
him rest and try again.
does not like being three legged and tries to pull away, get a second person
to help you. Have her hold onto Rovers collar and leg while you call him to
starts to get it, relax a little on the leash and have him walk a bigger distance.
Now you can also try it off leash. Make a sling around his wrist and attach
it to his collar. Now call him to you using the LIMP command. If Rover tries
to walk on all four legs go back a step. If he does LIMP you can now remove
the leash and try him. If he LIMPS, your work is finished! Good job!!!
