December - Lulu breaks her knee

 Our December spent in treating Lulu. So, Lulu managed to break her back leg knee cruciate ligament on the evening of 26th November. Next day we went to the vet clinic where the suspicion of this diagnosis were put. We managed to get to the orthopedist already on the 29th November who confirmed the diagnosis. Doctor said that the only cure is operation, that was planned on 14th December. So 2 weeks we had to wait for the operation, during witch Lulu got quite used to the bad knee, even to the point that she managed to jump on the bed...!


Operation went well. On the evening of the operation Lulu was confused and in pain so there was lot of crying and complaining. 


 next day she still felt very bad, but was using already the operated leg.





The second day she started to feel better and already on 4th day after the operation she wanted to play.

6 months of Lulu agility training

We started our agility training with Lulu from March (she was 5 months) once a week, 2 months later we added one more training to a week.

She has been excellent student, I do not train home enough but somehow she still knows what to do :) In handling, she also have to learn how to read my mind, cause Im not very clear :)

For now we try simple handling, finally she does tunnels, we are in the medium high of the see-saw. and our running dog-walk is low plank. 

Here are some videos from our training.

Here is 2 months agility training (04.05.2021), one of the first times outside and trying to do multiple obstacles:

14.07.2021. Already 4 months of training behind us:
