My dog sashi is scared of balloons. I tried many things to get her to not be scared like I put a treat on the ballon and she ate it but its when the ballon goes up that she gets scared. Please does anyone know how to fix this?

Just give your dog a treat everytime she sees a balloon.

Look up the "look at that" game (I think that's what its called) otherwise maybe a member can link you to it.

Here is one of our members videos of her playing the look at that game.

You basically start off by being a 'safe' distance (determined by the dog) from a balloon, when he looks at it you click and treat (or say yes and treat). Then you can slowly work your way closer to the trigger (in this case a balloon).

The point is the dog will associate a balloon with a positive experience (getting a treat)


Please ask if you have questions :)
