Service dog calming handler after a trigger. Car horns are a huge trigger for me, I really don't know why. I hear one and it's instant panic and my anxiety shoots through the roof. Levi and I were walking into Wal-Mart when someone blared their horn in the parking lot not far from us. I went inside and sat down and used Levi and DPT to calm me down. I came out of this one fairly quickly and, because of him, was able to go about my shopping whereas if I'd been triggered alone, making it through the trip would have been almost impossible.
