Just a few convincing photos showing the value of patience and persistence in socializing dogs and teaching them how to "share". Mya used to get snarky when she is with other dogs and suddenly, yummy treats come into the picture.
Here she is, practising self-control during a session of desensitization- desensitizing her to the presence of other dogs during treat-giving. Just look at the intensity of her stare. Ears focused and all.
|Good job, Mya!|
|You deserve a treat!|
