Not moving back legs
by: Annonymous

This is a problem for a vet. This is not something you can train just as you could not train an ill person to behave in a healthy way.

Pet Worries
by: Shelly

Any time your pet behaves in a way that makes you nervous, it's good to check to find what could be wrong. In this case, I think a visit to the vet is called for. A vet will make observations and ask questions to get at the bottom of the problem and will be able to give you advice specific to your pet.

Keep it slow and steady.
