      Training for a mobility scooter.

      I have been putting of this day for a long time but I need to have one. I see it a defeat but need to try and look at it as a tool of going places I have not been able to go to in a long time. Molly needs to learn how to be next to the scooter. We did train for this during her training but it has been a while. We will take it slow when I get it. Training on turns and stopping, backing up, left and right and grabbing items to put in the cart if they fall. I hope I haven't forgotten anything. Any suggestions welcome.

      Molly seems to be a bright and motivated dog who wants to please you. I know she'll catch on and probably quicker than you think. My sister has M.S. and has used a scooter for almost everything she needs to do outside the house. It has enabled her to live a very, very active life. Some of the things she does... maybe the scooter is overkill, but then again... it keeps her from getting seriously fatigued. I think it has kept her healthier than if she insisted on using her walker for everything.

      Best of luck to you.

      Do not thing if it as a defeat. Can u get a trainer to do a session. Just for your safety. Some sort of no pull device till she is solid.

      Its going great. We have been training on The road in front of my house, I live on a very quiet road. Next we will go to a Costco and make sure my signals work there. The isles are very wide and we can go off peak. She seems to be right with me as if we on a leash only Dif is she gets to move a lot faster. For now I am calling it the pet mobile because both girls are enjoying daily walks now.

      That's wonderful, for BOTH of you. Hope you keep making progress and enjoy the experience. Give Molly a BIG hug and kiss from us all.
