My skin is really sensitive to the sun, I need to use a sun umbrella (yes, I use sunscreen too). I live in a place that had been mostly cloudy till recently. I tried to go for a walk earlier this week with my pup and I opened my sun umbrella and he was terrified.
I tried putting treats near the umbrella. He'll get them, but his fear doesn't seem to be getting much better.
It's a pretty big problem, because I haven't been able to take him on an afternoon walk for a couple days.
Any ideas on how to get him ok with umbrellas soon?
