Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Baloo’s first session we worked on his loose lead and drop skills over at the pony club. Baloo started off very distracted by his environment and his nose was often to the floor. His drops were still very good however his loose lead wasn’t great. If Baloo was walking ahead of the trainer and showing no engagement she would turn around. If he followed he was told ‘yes’ and rewarded however if he continued walking and didn’t turn the trainer used ‘uh uh’. After a few uses of ‘uh uh’ Baloo started to show some good engagement. As he started to do well we continued into the second session. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: As mentions above the second session was again conducted over at the pony club and we worked on his loose lead with drops. Baloo had improved from the start of his first session and his engagement was a lot better. His drops were very good, there was only a few times the trainer had to use ‘uh uh’. One issue we had when walking was that Baloo would walk sideways infront of the trainer. When this occurred he was pulled to the side or the trainer took a large step to block him from walking to the other side with her leg. Again Baloo improved towards the end of the session and started to walk nicely besides the trainer without pulling or walking infront. The next step for Baloo will be to continue working on his drops/loose lead over at the pony club. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Baloo’s last session we worked on his chin rest skill. We continued pushing him by trying to place a treat on his nose while he held his chin rest. He did amazing and we were even able to do it a couple of times. To achieve this every time Baloo lifted his chin before being told ‘yes’ he was told ‘nope’ and asked to try again. The next step for Baloo will be to working on this and start getting more repetitions where you can actually place the treat on his nose without his breaking his chin rest. Focus: Repetition A+

We recommend your next step should be…
