Today I was able to get the video camera in time to film Gilda's response to the Mail Lady (or anyone) coming to the front door. She is over-threshold as soon as she hears the mail truck half a mile away. It gets even worse when the doorbell rings! Notice how quickly she recovers once Gail leaves the porch.
The humorous thing here is that Gail was delivering 2 books today: 'On Talking Terms with Dogs: Calming Signals' by Turid Rugaas and ' Scaredy Dog! Understanding and Rehabilitating Your Reactive Dog' by Ali Brown.
Oh the irony!
