Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Buddy’s first session was loose lead walking. This was done outside by the kennels at first. Buddy was very distracted by the other dogs and the smells in the grass and took a little while to settle. The trainer worked in a small area at first and used the yes marker to help Buddy focus on the trainer. As the session progressed Buddy started to engage much more and worked well with noisey dog distractions. He was still keen to pull towards the smells that were on the grass, so this will be a goal to work towards by pushing him with those types of distractions. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Buddy’s second session was place. The trainer did this outside in the shade where there was lots of good smells. Buddy did reasonably well so the trainer started sending Buddy to place from a distance. Buddy was just stopping short of the place so the trainer used Uhuh and by the end of the session Buddy wasn’t stopping short. The trainer also had a little game of red light green light. Revving Buddy up and then sending him to place. He did a great job. Next time when it is cooler it will be good to push Buddy more with dog distraction. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Buddy’s final session was middle. The trainer did a few reps with Buddy but by this time he was feeling the heat and was not keen. So the trainer sat in front of the fan with Buddy and did ring the bell. This was more the speed of the afternoon the trainer and Buddy needed. Buddy did well and it wasn’t long before he was starting to make the connection with touching the bell and getting a treat. The trainer then waiting until Buddy started to touch the bell with his paw. He started to do this when he got frustrated and tried different things to get a treat. This is a good trick for days like this. It was great just chilling on the floor with Buddy and having a fun session like this but still getting his brain ticking over. Focus: Repetition C
