Storm is learning to trust her trainer Anitra out in the "big bad scary world". This weekend they visited the flea market at the NC State Fairgrounds. It's a dog friendly place in an outdoor setting which has lots of distractions. To prepare for her outing, first Storm went to a park and took a walk, and then she did drills in the flea market parking lot. This helped her work off a lot of nervous energy so she could succeed. The key to a successful public outing is to plan ahead.
Below Storm is pictured in a very relaxed down first at the park, and then at the flea market. There are lots of people and other dogs all around yet she's focused on Anitra, and not worried about them.
