Congratulations! You got your sling! Now what?
Golden Rule #1: DO NOT RUSH IT!
Hope the above pictures give you an idea on how to properly introduce not only The sling but also new tools.
Next: How To put it ON
Next put the back two paws in The Sling. Secure your pup by lifting the sides and connecting the velcro.
Max is now ready to be lifted!
Note: He is using an L3 Sling, he weights 8.8 pounds. I do not lift any dog on XL4. 8.8 pounds is my limit.
How to and where to hang The Sling:
Please use common sense when using The Sling. Make sure that the arm/bar can withhold their weight.
The Sling comes with 2 handles and a extra strap, the handles are not detachable but the extra strap is. On the above picture I am using only handles.
Here you you can see how I use the extra strap to keep max in place. Some pups don't need to be lifted. If you have a very active pup, this is a great way to keep them in place.
Max Lifted. I am using a carabiner.

IF YOUR PUP IS NOT "COOPERATING"
Very gently push the pup on Sling for a few seconds and then stop it. This will make the pup move less.
Last but not least! Keep sessions SHORT! No one is coming to take your tools away. You know your pup better than anyone else. Please take your time.
These are my tips and tricks for you. They have worked for me and many parents but, due to your pup UNIQUE personality, I CAN'T guarantee 100% success.
