The younger the dog is for first tear the more likely it is to have the second. Dogs that have juvenile tears seem to be, for whatever reason, more susceptible to CCL injury.I’ll just say it now. Dam sure like to hear of some dogs that stayed competitive after surgery on one leg and didn’t blow out the second. It seems its more of a matter of WHEN will the other cruciate go most of the time. I’m realistic, but don’t think it’s crossed my mind to get another youngster started.
Lessons learned if your around the games long enough it’s going to happen to you. Get pet insurance.
They can - and much more than that. HHumm. The harness I bought (not knowing what I should get) pulls from the top of the hips. Thanks for the advice. (No idea they could pull 1k.)
Pulling 25% of body weight ultimately is the goal, One foot of 3/8 chain weighs 1.25 lb, I have 2 six foot sections of 3/8 and 5/8 inch for heavier pulling. Attach the chain to a 3 foot bungee cord and attach the bungee to the side D rings on the harness. I have a Power Point presentation somewhere which shows the setup, I will try to find it and post it.
