Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Bella’s first session was place in the classroom. However, the trainers worked with Bella as if it was class and Bella was on place by the desk and dogs and people came through exactly like they did in class. Bella did well and although she did look, she didn’t bark or lunge. It was great. The trainer decreased the amount of treats towards the end of the session and no one else was in the room. Bella got quite vocal and demanding of treats if she wasn’t rewarded after a little time. The trainer ignored this and pushed it out longer so Bella knew she wouldn’t be rewarded when she wanted. Where possible at home lessen the frequency of treats in low distracting areas. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Next up for Bella was loose lead walking. She did pull a little heading up the driveway but a couple of direction changes and she soon settled. The trainer took Bella to the top car park where people were fixing a fence. Bella was distracted at first and the trainer worked in a small area to bring Bella’s focus back. Once that happened the trainer was able to increase the work area again. Bella then saw the horse. This caused Bella to lose focus and the trainer had to increase the distance. But with conditioning by the end of the session Bella was able to get closer and still focus on the trainer. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning Comment: Muzzle training was last up for Bella and she did a great job. Unfortunately the muzzle here doesn’t fit well but the trainer held the straps together a couple of times as if it was on. If you have one at home feel free to bring that next time. But she progressed well during the session and her duration was fantastic. Focus: Repetition B
