Whoa! What is that?! 😱 lol **please note: i don't terrorize Gotcha with scary things to get a reaction out of him for social media views. I strongly feel that It's important to teach/show them not to be afraid of everything that moves, makes noise, lights up, or is new and different. There are correct ways and incorrect ways to introduce "scary" things. *
Over the years Gotcha has overcome so many fears. I've encouraged him in calm and gentle ways not to be fearful of "silly things". He was afraid of most everything when I brought him home.
It's important to help them see and to reassure them that objects and toys etc aren't going to harm them.
If we don't show them this then they will continue to live in constant fear of new and different things. That's no way to live!
You can see how quickly he went from POOFED and defensive to calm and relaxed. This is in part due to the work I've put in over the years but also my calm and relaxed demeanor. I would never introduce him to anything that will cause him harm, he trusts me and he's so brave!
I'm so proud of him, he's come such a long ways. This toy is a scary one! But he realizes very quickly that it isn't going to harm him 😊. *full video on YouTube. Link in bio*
