Default More trouble with Ares :(

So I think I figured out what was causing the recent aggression. And we're doing much better in that area.

And today, he fell off the top step of the porch and needed three tries to make it onto the couch.

His hind end just isn't holding up very well.

I didn't hear the reason for Ares's behavior.. is it easily stopped?

Yes and no...

With his incontinence issues, the daily routine had changed a few times, and he didn't agree with some of those changes.

Aww, poor Ares

Do you think if his hind end continues to get worse you could acclimate him to a cart?

Ares on wheels?

I'm sure I could. Right now, it's just stairs and furniture that causes a problem. His insistence on doing things he really can't do isn't helping.

If you want him on the couch, and he's having trouble, you could just put a short object in front of the couch so he has a step up.

I agree with the above. You can get those light weight carpeted ramps that have special grips on them. That way he doesn't have to jiggle his hind end and loose balance.
