how big are your dogs(weight) I think it's a better trick for small-medium dogs. I'm teaching this to my 35pound dog.I really want to teach this trick but my biggest fear is that this trick would be unhealthy for his joints? It just... really isn't natural and looks like it puts a lot of strain. I know a lot of medium-large dogs are already prone to things like elbow dysplasia. Does anyone know otherwise or ways to ease stress on their joints for this one?
Oh, I just read some of the previous posts on this page, I see I'm not the only concerned one.
