Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building) Comment: Bentley’s first session was the confidence course. It was funny to watch him start to head around alone and then look back as if to say well are you coming as well? He went around a few times with the trainer. The session ended in the training area doing recall. This is something the trainer can work further on as Bentley although came tended to walk passed the trainer or got to the trainer and dropped rather than sit. Next time the trainer would like to see Bentley recall with the sit at the end. Focus: Repetition X
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Next up was a bit of a few things. The trainer started with send to place. The trainer had Bentley on a long lead and did send to place. Starting off from only a short distance from place the trainer pointed and said place. After a few false starts Bentley worked it out and then was going to place from the end of the long lead. The trainer then added in around. Again Bentley wasn’t keen but Uhuh made him realise he couldn’t avoid it and he did a great job even with other dogs in the classroom. The trainer ended on paws up and started to get Bentley to pivot around on the object. He only did a little bit but it was a start. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Lastly was a confidence walk with drops in the paddock. These are great for Bentley has he does like to power towards home. So getting him to drop does make him slow down and learn he can’t just pull ahead. While in the paddock the trainer also got Bentley to do paws up on a different tree stump and he was excited to do it and didn’t need to be lured. He had that proud face going on and he stayed there for a while posing for photos! Focus: Repetition B
