I wanted to share with you a product that I am SO EXCITED about!
It’s called ‘Wiggleless’ and it’s essentially a very stiff vest/jacket that is worn by dogs with back problems. The jacket (which has metal rods sewn into it) offers the dog spinal stability and support, and prevents the dog from bending it’s spine too terribly much. It’s meant to be worn during the day, while the dog is being physical.. but can be taken off while the dog is as rest.
I, for one, am EXTREMELY excited about this. Jersey, in particular, has a really bad habit of wiggling from side-to-side– like a fish. When he is happy or excited, he wiggles.. And let me tell you, he is happy almost all the time! His wiggling really concerns me, but until now I didn’t know how I could deal with it.
I have just ordered a jacket for us, and promise to give it a full & proper review once it arrives. I imagine Jersey will need some time to grow accustomed to wearing it, as he doesn’t typically enjoy the feeling of clothing/things on his body… But I think that if I ease him into it, and give it time, he could get used to it.
