Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In her first session, Billie focused on working on her skill drop within the classroom. We focused on this skill to further build her basic obedience and impulse control. Billie performed well, she quickly follows a lure into the drop position but stands up quickly. Today we worked on building her duration (time in drop) before being released. Billie progressed very well throughout the session; her duration increased while the treats slowly faded. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home. Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In her second session, Billie focused on improving her loose lead waking within the classroom (another dog in the classroom training). We focused on this skill to further her understanding of leash manners. The trainer initially used a lure to guide Billie into the correct position, this lure slowly faded as the session progressed and she continued to perform well. This is a great skill to practice at home in a low distracting environment (inside your house). Focus: Manners B+
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: In her final session, Billie focused on learning the new skill middle, we worked on this skill as an introduction to recall and to boost confidence. Middle is where the dog walks around the trainer to sit in between their legs. Billie was initially hesitant to walk through the trainer’s legs, however, after some conditioning, she began to follow treats through. Once her confidence grew, she performed very well, following the lure into the correct position. Focus: Foundation C
