These videos relate to Chloe a 4 years old dachshund, operated from a disk herniation. Chloe has been equipped around one year after her operation. She has been using her Kerdog in phase 1 mode for around 4 months. She is now able to walk much longer distances (several thousand feet as opposed to a few tens), she also walks in a much more synchronous way, she is able to jump and to climb staircases.  Her owner has to limit her in her activities in order to avoid her having another injury. Rehabilitation with her Kerdog is still underway and I’ll keep you posted on her future outcome

note that very often the use of the Kerdog helps a lot regulating the dog’s defecation process. One can see also on this video how the Kerdog allows the rear harness to move up and down thus allowing the dog to carry out some extension movements of its hind limbs either during phase 1 and phase 2 of the Kerdog rehabilitation process
