Video: Training at School

We brought Bo to our meeting with the school nurse the other day and took the opportunity to do training in the empty corridors. We experienced a few bumps but overall the boy and pup did well. Austin walked Bo up and down the corridors and up and down the stairs. He stopped to talk with a former teacher and he pretended to get things from a locker. Our plan is to gradually increase the intensity of distractions and duration of exposures in the school environment. This day only teachers and administrative staff were in the building. The distractions were what I consider low: new smells, new but quiet spaces, low traffic and calm interactions with people.
