To put it simple, work them outside the trailer and lt them rest in the trailer. I start with lunging. Enough to get them breathing heavy. At that point I bring them to the trailer, just to let them rest at the trailer. If they sniff or investigate the trailer, I let them. If they back away, back to work they go.
When they start to stand calmly just outside the trailer, I use the sending exercise, just like lunging but in half circles. I use their forward momentum to send them into the trailer. Usually, they'll balk or back out right away, so back to work again. They figure out that if they stay in, they can rest.
Finally, when they do stay in, I'll try backing them out just a step. They usually back all the way out so I work them some more. You know that they choose to be in when you try to back them a step or two, release the pressure and they go back forward. That's the point where they will load themselves like he does in the video.
The method is from Clinton Anderson.
