There are things we can do to help to raise their threshold.

Triggers are anything your dog finds stressful. Trigger stacking is the accumulation of (or ‘stacking up of’) multiple stressful events. Each of these events adds to the dog’s overall stress level, which can eventually lead to a point where even a minor trigger can result in a reaction.

Head home, give your pup a calming activity such as a Licki mat or a long-lasting chew, and start again tomorrow once your dog has somewhat decompressed. Keep on keeping on – with trigger stacking in mind.
