Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Arlo’s first session was loose lead walking. The trainer took him into the big paddock where the sheep were to really push the distractions. Arlo was quite pushy with treat taking and not gentle at all. He also pulled a lot on the lead. The trainer had to change direction a number of times and use the Uhuh word to remind Arlo of his manners. As Arlo settled he was much better. As the trainer approached the sheep Arlo was able to do basic obedience and hold position regardless of the sheep moving towards him. The loose lead walking on the way back to the classroom was again with Arlo needing to be reminded of his walking skills. At home go back to basics a little and increase distractions as he improves. Focus: Distraction C
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: Next up was recall. The trainer took him into the paddock and worked on recalls there. As the trainer has done this with Arlo before and was very impressed, the trainer was surprised that Arlo was very distracted this time and needed a slight tug on the lead the majority of time to get Arlo to recall. As the session progressed Arlo got a little better however not near where he was last time he visited Windamere. Arlo was also a little reactive to dogs today. At home tighten up on his obedience skills and ensure he is not pushing boundaries. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building) Comment: Last up was the confidence course. Can’t visit Windamere without circuits of the confidence course. Arlo did well with this and did a few circuits before he was done. It was a pleasure to have Arlo at Windamere today even if he wasn’t as well behaved as he has been in the past. However by ensuring consistent rules and boundaries at home and back into Dayschools it won’t take long before he is back on track. Focus: Repetition X
