  1. 1

    Calm your dog down by sitting them down and talking to them soothingly. Show your dog the treat that he/she will receive if he/she behaves. Put the treat up high or somewhere out of reach for your dog.

  2. 2

    Take the dog eye wipe, and gently wipe your dog's eyes, holding him/her firmly, yet still talking to them calmly. Wipe each eye a few times.

  3. 3

    Take your damp tissue and wipe off any excess "eye goo." Continue to calm your dog down by talking to him/her during the process. Pet your dog many times after you are finished with the tissue.

  4. 4

    Take that treat down and make a VERY big deal when handing it to your dog. Make sure the dog feels proud and excited about his/her good behaviour.
