Training Blog - Bella
Tonight we did some "open bar" work with Bella to counter-condition her whenever Nikki came into the room. Open bar is the technique of continually feeding the dog during the stressful situation in order to change the perception of a bad thing to one of a good thing. During my time there Bella showed no signs of aggressiveness towards Nikki at all, and was even learning to look at her owner for her reward when Nikki did appear.
