In episode 41, I give you a step by step exercise to teach your dog to accept handling and petting more neutrally. I promised you this handling exercise in podcast 39 (our micro-first aid class with Lynn Russell). These exercises, that I recommend you do prior to each meal, will make life easier with your dog. Your dog will become a better veterinary patient and a better grooming client. Your dog will be less stressed with interaction with people and be able to do lots of things like teeth brushing, coat brushing, nail clipping and bathing.
