Good evening all,

I just had my 6 month old GSD spade and I will be picking her up this evening. Does anyone have any ideas on keeping this rather active puppy down for 2 weeks as suggested by the vet?

Thanks,

Chad

I kept mine leashed to me day and night for the first week... It's a miserable time, but it's the best way I know to keep them resting and not licking. If you have a crate, you could use that to give yourself breaks.

Crate as much as necessary and hand walk only on a leash for potty. Give her lots of quiet things to do like marrow bones, frozen kongs, etc to alleviate the boredom.

It's a long 10 days, but it's worth it to avoid post surgery problems.
