Enzsound Posted February 19, 2021 Report Share Posted February 19, 2021 I have this conundrum I want to train around, and trying to come up with something fun me and Indiana can do to work through it. 'Magical Portals', or kind of how she must see them... We have things like doorways, elevators, 90 degree turns in a hallway, garage doors, where she walks and navigates in and out of all the time calmly and politely, but sometimes the gods conspire and something AMAZING appears in one of these portals! Any impulse control is out the window, our neighbors 4 year old kid she loves is racing towards her! Very tall neighbor is carrying takeout very low, and he gave Indy good scratches last time. Other neighbors extremely reactive tiny dog is growling as the door slides open. For note, we're working on waiting at doors and that being an implied thing with general success (portals aside). If I had a few friends and an afternoon, maybe using an elevator as an example, what would others do to sort of desensitize this sudden overload of excitement? (5 month old pup, my expectations are realistic. However a lot of strangers indulge her, so trying to get some reps where shes not allowed to rehearse the sudden rushing and pulling).
