|Well behaved Cairns are the result of patient and positive training, one step at a time.|
In this episode, Brandon highlights the common thread that all training must be positive and step-by-step and, at about the half-way point, he shows how he worked with a Poodle-mix to overcome a severe case of separation anxiety. It is particularly interesting because he uses an anti-anxiety shirt, but he adds the element of scent - very much like Col. Potter Matchmakers advise adoptive homes when preparing a Cairn for their day of adoption and introduction to their new home. To help ease anxiety, your scent could be added to a Thundershirt, but it could also be added to a baby T-shirt or other garment you already have for your dog.
Something to think about!
