Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his first session we worked on red light/green light drops with a tug toy. Boat did pretty well with this though was a bit slow on some of his drops so this could use a bit more work. He was also quite distracted by other trainers in the room and would ignore the toy if too close to them. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his second session we took Boat outside to work on his loose lead. We started off on the pavement to build engagement and then progressed to loose lead on the grass. He was a bit more distracted on the grass but could give good focus. He would get completely distracted anytime a car arrived in the carpark or people walked past so focusing on some skills outside while we are open in future dayschools should help with this. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: For his last session we worked on the middles skill. Boat is very good at going into middles, he didn't need any luring and would go right into position as soon as he heard the verbal cue. Once in middles he has decent duration and we were able to start moving around with him in middles, first with luring and then with just a hand to help guide him. Keep up with this skill at home, he's smashing it! Focus: Distraction B+
