Oh, sorry to hear you need surgery. Hope you have a speedy recovery.
How is your dog on lead now? Pulls? Heels nicely? Will he/she try to bolt to end of lead after a squirrel or anything like that?
If it was my neck and shoulder, and there was ANY chance that my dog would pull for any reason, I'd probably use a short traffic lead in my good hand and a prong, to minimize the chances I would get jerked or pulled off my feet feet during recovery. Or, if it is in the budget, hire a dog walker or get a friend to do it for you until it is safe.
Even if your dog is 100% on lead you have to allow for something off happening, like a row with an unleashed strange dog. if something like that happened, I would not want to be tethered to the dog. Being able to drop the lead quickly would, unfortunately, be the safest option.
I agree with comet depends how much your dog pulls. Gandalf doesn't pull so I actually just take our bungee leash and put a carabiner through the hand loop and clip it to a loop on my jeans, it does the trick!
My wife and I are expecting early next year and our male dog Grendel has gotten obsessed with my wife. Sticks to her like glue.
We typically commute together so most days we obviously get home at the same time, and he’s been barreling out of the crate like it’s on fire to find her. He’ll knock...

What’s your opinion on dog parks? Do you guys have Any horror stories or have you only had good experiences?
The first time I brought kuru to a dog park was when she was 18 weeks old and it ended up easily being the worst decision of my life lol! At first it was all good, I had the whole thing...
