Be slow, and be safe. Its hard work, don’t think anything else. But its also very rewarding when all works out for both people and animal. Now what’s really important, is understanding what safety is. I could be in a kennel where my co-worker just got snapped at and be perfectly safe. Whereas in another instance, I could be being unsafe by holding out my hand for a dog to sniff whose on the confining side of a chain link fence. You have to learn to read the dog. And that takes time and patience. Safety is reading the dog, and accurately interpreting its signals, and responding to them. There’s a certain passiveness that you must maintain while you do so however.
Trauma, toxins or viruses can also be the cause of cerebellar ataxia in dogs. That part of the brain that controls balance - the cerebellum - is affected by this type of ataxia. In the case of vestibular ataxia it affects the inner ear and the alignment of a dogs body and head. Not standing straight and holding the head at an angle are typical signs. The spinal cord and thus the position of the dogs legs are affected by sensory ataxia. Some signs of this type are the dog crossing its legs when walking or they may walk on the back of their paws.
