A little hand feeding from a stranger, with a #dog present and sharing with that dog from Mr. Zeus!
A far cry from the #lunging #barking machine he was when he came in. Lots of boundaries, structure and #leadership with this insecure guy.
The more exposure he gets, the more confidence his family gains...the more confident he will become.
Remember, when working with your own #dogs, don't skip the baby steps and don't rush.
What do I mean by that? There are several steps to a process. When you learned math in school, they didn't start off by teaching multiplication. You had to learn your numbers. Then you had to learn what the plus, minus, division, and multiplication signs all meant. After lots of practice, you them began to put things together on the simple end: 1+1=2. You worked your way up to the more complex math problems.
It's the same for not only teaching dogs, but breaking bad habits and patterning new ones. And just like math, some people find it easy and others hard. Your dog can find certain things much easier than others. And each dog is different. That is very important to remember.
If you need help with breaking down those steps for your dog, get in touch! I'd love to help!
