Zum reacts to spooky things in different ways. He stops and freezes. He tenses up. He jumps sideways or backwards.Or he runs in a panic. I am introducing him to spooky things gradually. With familiarization and repetition, he is accepting scary things without fear. It took him lots of lessons but he now accepts a frightening blue tarp! He steps on it and he even lets me put the tarp on his back. I reward him for being brave with a rest break, a loose rein, a scratch on the withers, a rub on the forehead and lots of praise in a soothing voice!
