default Exercises to build back leg muscles

Hello, my dog has had 3 operations on his back legs and I now need to build the muscles in his back legs up again. Does anyone have any ideas? I've got him into swimming but I really think he needs to be doing more strength work.

what was the operation for?

I wouldn't over do it too much, keep him swimming till the leg is stronger them get him playing with boomer ball and hilly walks etc.

Cruciate ligaments, both back legs. He's had hydrotherapy and I've been taking him to the river and sea to get extra swimming in. We are doing hill walks too.

What's a boomer ball?

A boomer ball is a huge solid ball which is indistructable, they love them!
