PLEASE consult your VET before even considering my advice. I have no Veterinary knowledge other than what I have learned on my own. I had a55 lb dog neutered about a year ago. They gave me the sameinstructions. However, he never missed a beat. Ya know some dogs heal faster than others, some dogs can tolerate more. Since you and he are both so miserable as a result of the Dr's orders perhaps it would be worth a call to the Dr' or more important a visit to the Dr to see if his restrictions can be lifted or altered...Jubal Early jumped into the back of the truck upon leaving the Vet's office while I was trying to figure out how to lift him into the cab..

I tried to keep him still and quiet but he acted as if nothing had happened. I just kept watching to see that his stitches were intact and pretty much let him be his normal self, short of opening the back door and letting him have at it. I beg of you do not do as I did. My point is that he is either in pain or perhaps a fast healer, in either case it may warrant a call to the Vet. Another thing to consider, there are probably different methods of neutering, another reason not to compare my dog's situation to yours.

Good Luck..Judy

It can be very dangerous to tether a 4-5 pound, 6 month old Yorkie/Basenji mix puppy(!) to your waist, and I just thought people needed to be warned. Imagine if the puppy weighed, say, 7 pounds! The horror. The horror.

Ask my husband about the morning he had three Irish Wolfhounds tethered to his waist, and they saw a cat..

Ask my husband about the morning he had three Irish Wolfhounds tethered to his waist, and they saw a cat..[/nq]Ok, let's talk about this. Because I am the proud new owner of a gadget I am loving so far, which is a hands free leash system. Remember, attaching Max to me is like attaching a feather. Zoe doesn't pull except when she forgets, so she can be reminded and it's easy to shorten the leash in case she needs an extra reminder. Queenie still pulls after 1.5 years despite all my best efforts so I got her a lunge-guard for the end of her leash.

Our first walk was down the driveway. We saw the neighbor's cat. I just stopped, leaned back somewhat, and all was well. I have a lot more strength in my torso and legs than in my arms and upper body. Also, you can grab the leashes so that you're using your whole body to restrain the dog. I also figure I could sit right down if worst came to worst (and hopefully not get dragged along on my rear).
Granted, none of mine is an Irish Wolfhound (I know they're tall, but how much do they weigh?) so please tell me the story!

And now everyone else can tell me why this is a bad idea when I have been enjoying it a lot so far and we saw another cat and an eevil squirrel on the longer walk we took later.

Toni, by my calculations...here, let me get out my trusty ol' slide rule...okay...hmm...lets see...slide the C scale up here...the D scale down to here...okay, I got it. I came up with the figure of 7,987 pounds +/- 500 pounds as the weight needed to offset the pulling force of three Irish Wolfhounds all pulling in the same direction.

But you probably still have all those fond memories of your husband to cherish, right? That long walk on the beach in Maui? That moonlit night in Las Vegas, where you met? Aaaaaah. "Misty water color memories of the way we were...."
Warning: When walking three Irish Wolfhounds with the leash tethered to your waist, make sure there are no cats in the general vicinity!

Well- in all seriousness it never presented a problem except the one time. The dogs were trained individually to behave on a leash before we even attempted using the tether system. If the damn cat hadn't caught everyone unawares he wouldn't even have spilt his coffee. It was 4 AM and foggy- usually we spotted any trouble way before they see it and were able to get ready.
Look into sanchin training- the hub teaches karate, and part of the kata exercises involves visualizing your feet anchoring your body to the earth, like roots on a tree, as well as lowering your center of gravity. It really helps in situations like this.

Tara, it's this one:

I tell you, I'm loving it it's easier on my knee (which is going to be replaced soon) which makes me able to walk longer. And it's quite eye- catching, I understand from the neighbors... They don't mention attaching three dogs but as I always say, Max doesn't count!

Are you considering one or thinking they are a bad idea, or something else entirely?

Going back to the original question...
I had my dog neutered one week ago. He's a 4 1/2 month old lab/daushun mix, and up until that point, he was one of the calmer puppies I'v known. The day we brought him home, he was incredibly hyper (granted he had just spent 2 days penned up at the vet's) but he never calme down. A week later, he has begun to chew and dig with a fury, whic wasn't much of a problem before. And he never stops biting our feet but it's more play than aggression.
He gets 1-2 walks per day, plus throwing the ball, and has a big yar to run in...so I'm not sure what's up. He was so active that we haven' reduced his activity at all...we can't!
Remember, this dog is half daushund...short little legs...supposed t tire quickly.
So I guess my dog is exhibiting the same type of behavior as th origional poster's, but without being pent up. I've never heard of thi happening, was expecting the opposite if anything.

Anyone else's dog have this response to getting neutered? Any comments

Thanks for the link. No, I love them. I use them all the time for training and wear mine (from canisgear) on all my lessons. I find it helps owners think differently about tethering indoors (makes them more likely to umbilical their dogs during certain times of the day when the dog would otherwise be poorly supervised or crated), and I like to use them as an alternative option for teaching leash handling. I find most pet owners accidentally create a lot of problems on lead simply by either overhandling the lead, or by just being a brick at the end of it. Taking their hands off the lead seems to help them engage in the process a lot better.

Its super hard to find the waist tether that I prefer, and they changed the design of it anyway. It used to have a super strong bungee as the short tether strap, now its just nylon which I don't like as much. The last few clients I've sent looking for a waist lead has not only not been able to get the one I have (even the store is having trouble getting them), but they can't find any other types. So this resource is GREAT. Thanks!
