I have been in touch with a reasonably local hydro place as I think it will help Dex's hip dysplasia and also many of you very kindly looked at his pic recently and suggested he could do with some muscle build- up My query is: any advice on helping Dex actually get into the pool - he's really scared of water The guy who runs the hydro apparently has a hoist - but knowing Dex this would be absolutely traumatic for him. I've worked so hard over the past three years to improve his confidence, I can't bear to do anything that might upset him, even though I really think the hydro will help. I thought that maybe if I take him along to just watch at first, perhaps seeing other dogs there having fun might help....? Any suggestions? Many thanks!
