Tell me where your dogs spot is.
A little trick you can use while attempting to relax your dog in those situations that make her a little to nervous is, find her happy spot. You know what I mean, the special spot on your dog that when you scratch or rub it she starts-a-kicken that leg almost as if she’s in ecstasy.
This is a little trick I came up with some years ago to help people that were having a hard time getting that happy attitude thing going on. The funny thing about this is, once you get her special spot and you start seeing her forget all about what ever was making her nervous. It’s then that most people can start getting happy themselves just by watching their dog.
The dog owner following the dogs emotional state is a little backwards from what I would like to see people accomplish, but it’s very effective and it helps many people get over that particular hump of letting go with their emotions to better help out their four legged friends.
So what are you waiting for, give it a shot. You do know where your dogs spot is, don’t you ? You better !
Practice the spot thing before attempting to use it in real life situation. If your not sure or have never tried to find your dogs spot, leave a comment and I’ll tell you the best places to start.
