One man went to mow

Our garden is not large, and the lawn is small – but it does need mowing every now and then.  The project is not big, but it is made more challenging by the fact that our dog, Jack, seems to have a mental breakdown every time we get the mower out.  The video shows you his reaction.  Any ideas as to how to help him calm down?!
