|This is my foster dog Jettsen, obviously he only has three legs. I'm trying to decided what to do with him on a leash.
He needs walks, he needs it both physically & mentally as I'm working on his fears as well. Cars & strangers being the main two.
He pulls but I feel like he's pulling because a faster pace is easier for him. When he runs in the yard there's like no limp. When he walks it's a bouncing movement.
He also weaves back and forth, which I believe is him trying to not pull and still have more movement in less space making it easier on him.
I feel like the pulling & weaving are going to make him look less appealing to a new home but at the same time I don't know if I want to slow him down even more which would just make walking harder for him.
I did try putting him at my side and walking slowly to see if he got it. He'd stand until he felt the end of leash, bounce up just past me, wait for the end of the leash again & bounce up past me ect.
Anyone have any ideas? Or is this something I should just leave alone, a quirk of his condition.
