Give that dog a break!

When we desensitize, we do it just a little at a time. We don't keep pushing and pushing, but go only as far as the dog is comfortable with, at any one time.

We cannot afford to rush.

This is the right moment to pop that dog a treat, while crooning praise to him.

FOUNDATIONS. Work at the dog's pace; don't push the dog; do ask the dog to cooperate. If the dog moves away, let the dog go. Invite the dog back. If it doesn't come, let it be, and try again later. Both practice and real sessions should be short; no more than a few minutes each. If you don't succeed in three tries, wait at least hours before the next try.
