Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Beanis first session we worked on his place skill. Today we worked around other dogs to continue building his neutrality and calm mindset around them. As mentioned on drop off this skill will be helpful when introducing him to the other family dog, they don’t need to play right away but first work on having them both be settled/neutral around each other to help with Beanis over arousal. Beani showing good progress, he can still break before his release word, when he does this we tell him uh uh and guide him back onto the bed. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his second session we worked on Beanis drop skill. Again working around other dogs to help with his settling. Beani did have a slight grumble at another dog who entered the classroom, nothing major but he is beginning to become more comfortable in the class environment which means we may start to see more of the behaviours you are seeing at home. When in the drop Beani can hold his duration well around low distractions but did struggle going into the position from a verbal/hand signal today and wasn’t super interested in his chicken when trying to lure him into position. Keep working on repetitions of this skill to strengthen the verbal and building his duration. Focus: Repetition C
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Final session Beani worked on his loose lead. We started off in the classroom before moving outside to the pavement area. Beani walked by the trainers side and gave some check ins but did still become easily distracted and pull ahead. When he did this we turned and began walking the other way, after doing this a few times the pulling decreased. Keep working on this in low distraction areas to strengthen his engagement before moving to more stimulating environments. Focus: Distraction C+
