Step 3: Use a trigger


For this step, we will use one of your dog’s real triggers. When your dog glances at the trigger (e.g. person, dog, car,  skateboard, etc.), click or say “YES!!”, and then reach into your pouch and feed a treat. Repeat until your dog looks to you expectantly when they see their trigger.      

Over time, your dog should start to feel relaxed and happy around this trigger that previously caused them discomfort or over-excitement. If this is not happening, get in touch with us so we can help!
