Staying cool is a mental game when it comes to dealing with people and dogs. We've all encountered people who seem so unaware of the what they are saying and doing. I try desperately to be an open minded person and not become as narrow minded as those I've encountered when I've been working with Chico. When you have a dog that is fearful, or reactive, like Chico a calm readiness is a must, even when the heat index is over 100 degrees!
