Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: In his first session, Arlo focused on further developing his skill loose lead and recall while outside with people distractions. Arlo performed well, he showed good engagement while walking but can be a little slow and fall behind. When training his recalls Arlo showed a basic knowledge of the 'come' command but struggled to perform the sit when returned to the trainer. The trainer went back to basics and lured the recall and Arlo into the sit position. After several repetitions, this lure quickly faded as he was performing well. We would recommend continuing to practice his recalls at home to ensure he has a good understanding. Focus: Obedience C+
Skill learnt: Leave Comment: In his second session, Arlo focused on further developing his skill leave it within the classroom. We focused on this skill to help build Arlo's impulse control around food. Arlo performed well, he showed a good basic knowledge of this skill which was able to be progressed quickly throughout the session. The trainer was able to begin placing the food on the floor, with the leave it commands he would ignore the food. The trained was also to begin throwing food on the floor and presenting it to him while he continued to ignore it. His final challenge was while eating from a food bowl the trainer used his leave it command, Arlo straight away stopped eating and gave full engagement to the trainer. The trainer was very impressed with his progress with this skill. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: In his final session, Arlo focused on further developing his skill Quoits within the classroom. We focused on this skill to continue building his problem-solving skills. Arlo performed well, he interacts with the ring quickly, picking it up off the ground. The trainer began encouraging Arlo to place the ring onto the peg. Arlo initially picked up the ring and dropped it straight to the floor. As the session progressed he began to move towards the peg. He did successfully place the ring onto the peg twice throughout this session. Focus: Foundation A+
