How can you work with a dog with just 2 legs?

Yesterday we went on our second visit to a client who had a 2 legged dog, no front legs.  A device was made for the dog but, according to the client it was poorly constructed and the firs time it was used it toppled over which terrified the dog.  Now when she sees the new and improved device she hops away and hides.  Last week I got her used to me, letting her get close, sniffing her and then ignoring her so she would not be afraid of me.  The second visit after suggesting Rescue remedy by Dr. Bach, we gave it to her and after some preliminary work, we put her gently in the device. She was a little nervous but, not that bad.  The only problem was she was trying to climb up on my lap.  Which could be likened to trying to roller skate up hill.  The device was left on for 5 minutes so she would not be too stressed.  If my directions are followed she will be leading a happy life, motoring around as if she had 4 legs.  All it takes is some patients, not hurrying things.
