getting over fear of sprays!

Set myself a challenge today! To help B get over her fear of the sprays, she hates the noise, we made good progress :) 

 Thought I'd explain what and why I did it in the video. Enjoy.

Re: getting over fear of sprays!

thats so good, thank you, deffinatly going to have a go at that tomorrow, would you suggest the same thing for pip as its not the noise its the contact it makes with her? i have done a bit of clicker with her shes done target, it desensitised her to umbrellas and we started training for a stand mat too and taught her to back up on command with it will do some target with her tomorrow as its been quite a while since we've done it then should i follow similar steps like spraying it away from her then on the floor? shes not horrendous as i can mane and tail her she just does not like fly spray on her body, unless its straight after shes had a bath which is weird . . .
