|Fred and Corky ease up to the bridge.|
|Fred explains the bridge walking concept to Corky.|
|Corky shows a little anxiety by yawning.|
|There was a moment of hesitation on Corky's part, so Jam showed him what to do.|
|They start over the bridge.|
|Smooth sailing up to the hump.|
|Corky stops to smell something.|
All in all it was a successful backyard exposure. We did the bridge the opposite way and there was no hesitation. Just a smooth walk on and over. Now he crosses it with a leash easily. When they are this little, as puppy raisers, we are supposed to find the little things to show them and build their confidence. This bridge was something easy for him to do. Now when we do a big bridge over a river or a wooden walkway by the pier, he will already have experienced something similar and can think back and say, "I've got this."
