When you have a dog with fear reactivity, it can be hard to know how to introduce them to people in your home.

In this episode, I answer Caicos' question from Instagram about how to introduce a fear reactive dog to a new guest in their home.

I discuss the benefits of keeping their guest informed, and then muzzle training their dog.

Breaking down the process is really important, and steps like

- Adding smells (a good trick is to take your guest's shoes off before they come over)

- Taking walks together

- Recognising where the dangers may be  makes the process a lot easier!
