We recommend introducing your dog to the shoulder support in short blocks of time until they are used to wearing it. Supervise your pet during use and reward with treats.
If both chest straps limit the forward/ backward movement of your dog walking (particularly in small dogs with severe shoulder instability), loosen the strap or remove one as you slowly introduce the support system for you pet.
More severe MSI cases may need additional hobble straps at the lower leg. Please contact us for more information.
