Misha May Foundation Training: Samson guards his food #2 - It's okay if ...

Exercise Goal: To teach Samson that people moving around his food bowl pose no threat. Samson begins with an empty bowl into which Lorraine tosses kibble. Samson sits and looks at Lorraine, understanding that she is the source of his food. He is more relaxed than in the first exercise; his tail is not tucked. Then Lorraine switches to small pieces of turkey preparing Samson for a bigger challenge. She moves away and toward the food bowl, each time tossing turkey to Samson. Samson enjoys the food and is undisturbed by the movement.
