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.
