Short BAT Clip – Fear of an Object

This BAT video was taken by Rachel Bowman of Bowman’s Canine in San Diego, who’s kindly given me permission to share it with you. She’s using BAT to help her foster dog, Theo, get used to the scary things out in the world.

Note that the talking during much of the training was this trainer’s choice for this dog, not officially part of BAT. I usually recommend being fairly quiet at the ‘choice point’ while the dog gathers info and then usually chooses to disengage. Praise is highly recommended after the YES marker!
