I've never had one but it shows up very early. Excellent information posted above or there is plenty of info if you goggle.

thanks, 

 

yes we read the thread, thanks for posting. 

 

but no one really explained what the purpose of the sling do?

our girl just sleeps in the there and doesnt move, sometimes back legs come out backwards but the we tuck them back in.

so how does this help the puppy? if you dont mind us asking, 

 

also how does getting the puppy to sleep on her side help also

 

thanks

I believe it's to keep the weight off the rib cage, breast bone so it recovers it's normal shape.
