Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Bentley’s first session was loose lead walking. The trainer took him for a walk around the edge of the paddock. Bentley did a great job and didn’t pull at all until it was starting to look like it was time to head to the classroom. The trainer stopped walking when Bentley pulled and sometimes asked for a sit or a drop. This helped Bentley calm a bit and stop pulling. He ended the session well when he worked out he wasn’t getting anywhere if he pulled. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Next up was drops in the driveway. Bentley does struggle with this but as Bentley got beyond the office and near the top car park he settled and dropped well. However, heading back down the drive he didn’t respond as well and at times he would circle around so he was facing back up the driveway! The trainer turned around and got Bentley back in the correct position. The last time back to the office direction he was less vocal and went into position without leash pressure! Good progress. Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building) Comment: Last up, to change things around the trainer took Bentley around the confidence course. Bentley started out going around alone but liked to wait halfway for the trainer to catch up to him! He wasn’t as keen to go around the course as he normally is but he went through a number of times. The trainer also got him to go the opposite direction. On the way back to the classroom Bentley pulled like a train to start with. So the trainer took it slow and changed direction. Did a few drops and slowly made it back to the classroom. Bentley did start to understand he wasn’t going anywhere while he was pulling! Focus: Confidence X
