A New PT Program: Chou Chou's Agility Baby Steps

Chou Chou Briard is in a new physical therapy program. She will continue her 45 minutes of underwater treadmill exercise, so that her hip dysplasia remains asymptomatic. But she will also do exercises, after treadmill, with her veterinary technician. 

This is her first attempt at stepping over bars. She will learn to avoid her feet touching the pvc pipes, and she will learn to jump over them when they are higher. She is practicing concentration, balance, and focusing on where her body is in space.  ("I like this as much as treadmill! I don't know what I am supposed to do, but if I follow my leader, there are lots of treats!")
