Hope this helps.
My pup broke her leg at 10 wks. ,about 6 wks later she was out of jail,heeled and ready to rock.Took it easy(as easy as possible) for another wk or so and then let her go.Wasn't easy to watch either,alot of cringing on my part,waiting for something to go wrong.She just turned a year old and is fine. Missed those 6wks of training but wouldn't know it now.
With mine, it seemed she just wasn't grasping things for a few wks after confinement. Was it me,poor training or the dog.Probably all. Well about 4-5 wks later the light switch went on.She not running Derbies but I'm happy with how she's doing and continues to get better.
