Okay - my Cody pup is willing to go to the nursing home, go into the first floor program room and will NOT go to the elevator. It has been a while now and I have taken him other places and even on other elevators but the elevator at the nursing home is a no-no. I tried giving him treats when he walked past it or looked at it or even stood there when the doors opened and someone got off (from a distance). It really is funny becasue as I said he will even go into elevators in other places. There is one elevator I can't stand as it's circa 1920 and as rickety as can be and he hopes right in like a kid on a ride at an amusement park. So I have stopped worrying about it. He will go other places and see people in the program room only at the one place but I'm not going to try and push it any further.
Now my question is - do you think it's better to let the sleeping dog lie (
) and move on or do you think it's worth trying to desensitize my sensitive pup?
