Frankie the American Bulldog heard some special news, his family was expecting a new baby! Unfortunately for Frankie, he was not comfortable around strollers. Frankie stayed with Suburban K9 for our dog boot camp program and our trainer Mike Simmons spent a lot of time acclimating Frankie to the stroller.
In this video you can see that the trainer is simply working on Frankie’s obedience commands around the stroller. Obedience is a great calming technique and we often use it to help dogs calm down in stressful situations. You might notice that the video and training are a little boring. That is the point! The trainers goal is to help Frankie feel calm and relaxed around the stroller, so the training style needs to reflect that goal.
