|Thanks for all of the great responses! I have since gotten a harness and moved the kennel. I kept his bed in the same spot. This has helped TREMENDOUSLY! No more dragging and he is finally getting up on his own when I hook the leash and ask him to get up. He is very food motivated and will take food from my hand outside, or anywhere really. He even sat with me outside for awhile when we went out... Without a leash. Small things, but yet so big!
However, I am thinking I may need to move his bed more to where we are. It is currently behind the couch, so he really doesn't see us to become curious about what we are doing. Or should I leave it and just go to him? I will have to work on ignoring him.
I didn't mention at the time of my original post that he was going in for an FHO today. He currently is walking on three legs, so hopefully this will not be too big of an adjustment for him, other than learning to use that fourth leg again. I guess we'll see if this is going to put us several steps backward after being at the vet until this Friday. I wasn't the one who put him in the car or who took him out to go into the vet, so hopefully he doesn't see me as the bad guy, even though I was there.
He really has made great strides in just a short amount of time, but we still have a ways to go. So, this isn't the last time you all will be hearing from me! Thank you all and please feel free to add any further advice or suggestions!
