Poor Zac, big hugs to him hope he's better soon. Shame he has to pull out but of course it's what's best for Zac which counts, not a challenge.I'm so impressed with all these reports that are coming in now of dogs that have finally got the idea of limp, you and your dogs are all totally amazing . Hopefully Brody's moment will soon come .
Zac is definitely withdrawing from the challenge now. I'm going to try to train hind leg limp another time but I don't think front leg limp is a good idea for him. This week he really hurt his "limping" paw (typical!). Even when he was in quite severe pain he would not limp by choice he either stood still or walked but very very lightly. I think it's maybe because his legs are so spindly and to limp he'd have to land with a lot of force on one paw whereas to walk he can land very lightly on whichever paw he chooses. Basically I've decided that if he would sooner endure pain like that rather than limp I don't think it is a trick I should be teaching him. I've seen him limp quite willingly on his back paw so I will try to teach him hind leg limp and post a video when he has 4 good legs to stand on again.
Sorry to you all for pulling out like this.
Looking forward to seeing all your videos when you get a chance to post them. With all of these breakthroughs do you still want another week or would you prefer to finish on Monday?
