Sit to Stand

If you get stuck sometimes either in a laying down position or cant get from a sitting position to a standing.  There are some easy fixes, if your dog can be encouraged to pull.  One of the easiest tools to use is called a double pull.  You grab one end and the dog grabs the other.  Of coarse this is only an assist, do not expect the dog to do all the work.  I have found a dog tug toy, Figure 8 Rope Toy, that works the best as far as giving both participants a good hold.  The cotton rope is gentle on dogs teeth and on your hands.
