Creating happy visits to the Vet Office! How often have we said/heard "my dog hates the Vet visit?" We can create a positive experience for our puppies/dogs at the Vet office by doing some simple training.
1. Schedule a visit to your Vet's office just for fun! Change your dog's association from fearful to happy by visiting the office and practicing some simple skills such as 'wait' for the door to open. Use high value treats, lots of praise and excitement for that 'wait'.
2. Practice sit for cookies on the Vet scale.
3. Practice Sit/Stay while you pretend to fill out a form or make payment.
With a little planning, you can create a happy, excited dog for your next Vet visit!
