The decision to have Fidget stay at Wizard of Paws for rehabilitation after his ACL surgery was not made lightly. It is always a hard decision to board your dog and this is especially true when they have been injured. It turned out to be the best decision I have ever made. Not only did Fidget come home stronger, with a much improved gait, but he also had a great time. I could not have afforded the time, travel and treatment costs of piecing together a program closer to home. He would not have progressed as fast had he stayed home.

His workouts started early in the morning and continued throughout the day and into the evening with down time to eat rest and recover. No matter what time I called, he was always doing something or had just finished a work out. Debbie used a variety of methods and activities to get him to use his leg properly. He did not have a “canned” program; instead it was tailored to his needs, ability and interests. I was sent home with a program to continue his improvements.

The Wizard of Paws facility is clean, attached to the house and offers a variety of options. Fidget was treated like one of the family. He got to hang out with Rhom, work with Debbie, spend supervised time with their dogs, and get treats from Debbie’s children. It was reassuring to know that I could call anytime to see how he was doing. They spent so much time with him; they had intimate knowledge of his moods, eating habits etc. unlike a bigger facility. Debbie has been a wonderful resource and very giving of her time and knowledge throughout this whole process. I can’t thank her and her whole family enough for all their help and support.

Fall 2008 Follow up on Fidget...

Fidget did really well in his jumpers class! We won Master’s performance level at 22 inches! He jumped smoothly and did not have any bar ticks. We will keep working so that he can go back to championship in the spring.

I want to thank you again for all the time and advice you have given.  Without you Fidget would probably not be using his leg. I will keep recommending you to all of my friends.
