If you’ve read the blog for awhile, you may remember that Z has has a horrible time learning how to pick up her feet. Having her trimmed was an exhausting procedure for both myself and the trimmer.
I’m happy to report that she has become so much better that I no longer fear for my husband’s life when he trims her! That’s good news!
I really think this is due to the regular chiropractic appointments she has had for the last four months. I’ve noticed that she is far less sensitive to me touching her back and has been cantering more willingly at freedom.
I went back to clicker training and though I do not think this was the reason she is easier to deal with (as I sincerely believe she had pain issues in her back), it has reinforced to her what I want: lift your feet.
And yesterday she lifted her foot in anticipation as hubby leaned over to pick one up! woohooo!!!
