Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Loose lead walking was first up with Albie. Like Inca Albie’s loose lead walking is great and when he did pull, a turn to walk in the other direction mean that Albie brought his attention back to the trainer. The trainer used this time to walk Albie passed dogs a few time and also sitting near them. Albie did really well with these first steps. The trainer kept Albie’s focus on his with the yes marker and treats and Albie didn’t worry about the other dog at all. It was awesome work for Albie. The trainer also took Albie to the cattery but as the cats weren’t moving much it didn’t hold much appeal and Albie didn’t react at all. Which is still a good sign as he would have been able to smell them. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Second session for Albie was place and send to place. Albie does have a good grasp of place and just wanted to test it out with the trainer first up. But once he saw that he couldn’t get away with getting off place he did really well. So then the trainer got Albie going from one place bed to another. By the end of the session the trainer was able to stand between the two bed and say free and bed and he would go to the one that was pointed out to him. He did a great job. Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Final session for Albie was drops with dog distraction. The trainer took Albie up near the kennels where a little dog was making lots of noise at Albie. The trainer kept Albie at a distance that he was aware of the dog but not reacting. Albie did really well and his drops were great. The trainer reduced the distance a little but this will be a small steps process. On the way back to the kennel that Albie had to go in he had to walk passed a number of dogs and he reacted very quickly to one and the others he walked quickly passed. It was an awesome session for Albie. Focus: Distraction B
