If she goes zero to ten in fifteen seconds, create three, two-minute periods–one for each 5 seconds leading to meltdown. Take her through each 5 second interval, two minutes at a time. Keep her energy level low. Keep her calm at all times. It exposes her to what triggers her, tells her you’re in control, and desensitizes her from her…

My training involves something I call "The Pause." Anyone learning "The Pause" will come to appreciate the power behind a loud exhale in getting your dog to submit. It's truly uncanny.
