Worked with Charlie and his water fears
I went out today and worked with Charlie for a bit. When I first went out there he wouldnt go for a spray bottle at all I put his halter on and held the rope and showed him the bottle. He danced a bit so I walked him around spraying in front of me he was fine with that so I turned and sprayed his way he was curious and came to check it out so I sprayed his legs.He danced a bit, but after only a few minutes I was spraying his whole body stopping in between when he calmed down to praise him and we started over. The hose is still a battle, but I did manage to hose his legs when he let me do that I thought that was a good place to stop and give him a break he did really good considering when I began he wouldnt go for the spray bottle at all. Am I going about this the right way or is there a different approach I should be taking?
