Default I have an idea for elios!

So. For fixing his barking and all at humans and dogs..

Instead of Elios seeing a person or dog and feeling my stress and barking, why don't I teach him to nudge my hand? So it would be replacing the bad behavior with good behavior!!

He knows touch, maybe he would learn it and eventually just do it automatically and it will help my anxiety and stress and it will also give him somthing to replace his barking!

What do you guys think??
