Approach a Sleeping

O Approach your dog when she's just fallen into a light snooze. Shake your treat cup as you call her name. The instant she lifts her head, stop, give her a treat, and then walk away. Progress to waking her from different levels of rest.

2 If you find that your dog startles easily, determine her Red Zoneā€”the closest you can get to her before she gets uncomfortable. Shake your cup, clap, and/or call her name calmly from this distance.

3 If your dog looks confused, kneel down and soothe her with your loving touch and words.

Practice these techniques with your dog in various locations, such as indoors, in the crate, on the furniture, or outside.
