Managing Restricted Exercise

At some point unless your dog is extremely careful, bombproof or just plain lucky, they’re likely to have some kind of injury and need their exercise restricted. Managing restricted exercise comes with a number of challenges and considerations, which will vary slightly depending on your dog and their injury.

My Finn is currently recovering from a cruciate ligament sprain, which means very restricted exercise and a long recovery time. I’m not qualified to give exercise advice, that needs to come from a qualified physiotherapist, this is an owners perspective on managing restricted exercise and things to consider.
