My dog gets skittish over odd things. While leash training the other day he spooked at a fire hydrant.

This happens at random times and I just give him lots of time to get used to it. I think taking time is the most important, plus encouragement. I read that it's good to let them work it out because it builds up their confidence.

So we had the in-laws for the weekend, and they parked in the same spot and he wasn't to fond of that. if you let him off the chain and there were kiddies playing then he wasn't​ as bothered by it.
