After Skye nipped Tanya, we took a step back in our pet sitter's introduction. Back to basic desensitization and counter-conditioning (DSCC) which means giving Skye tons of treats when Tanya is around, and stop when she leaves. In addition, Tanya leaves behind a very yummy treat on the floor.
It took 3 visits to get Skye to stop over-reacting at her arrival. 2 more to get her relax in her presence. And today, we got Skye to lay down and take treats while Tanya was here. Yay!
We are going to repeat that at least one more time, before moving to the next step.
It's all puppy steps with Skye but we are making progress.
