  1. I would have the client inside and they can see dogs of different sizes outside the window. 
  2. I would have the client sit down and bring in 1 small dog to be in the same room but not within 6 feet of the client.

  4. I would have the client pet the dog.
  5. I would repeat these steps with dogs of varying sizes.
