What could be triggers for dogs? A trigger is an object or situation that causes your dog to react, e.g. another person, a running animal, a car, thunder, or a lawnmower.

In behavioural training, we want to change your dog’s reaction/behaviour to a trigger (counter conditioning) and your dog’s emotional response to a trigger (desensitisation).
Before your dog gets tense and reacts to a trigger, redirect your dog’s attention to you or some activity. They will be less likely to get aroused.
If your dog finds it hard to focus and doesn’t take treats, you are too close to the trigger. Increase the distance.
