Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Bunji’s first session today was all about his loose lead walking outside. We went straight into it, he wasn’t taking treats to start with and would spit out the fritz but he was following the trainers direction really well. If he did start to pull in front we simply changed direction and went the other way. It was easy to redirect his attention if he was distracted. When we saw another dog approaching we would put him into a drop and keep his focus on us. If he did look we would mark it and say yes, this helps him make a positive association between other dogs. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: The second session today was all about emergency drops or drops while walking. We did this in the cattery where there are some distractions and is also safe to let go of the lead. As we walked along we said “drop” very clearly, slowed our movement a little until he went into position. We could then drop the lead and continue walking while he stayed in position. Bunji did really well with this skill, to keep improving this, focus on the speed at which he gets into position! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: The last session today Bunji worked on his place skill outside. We were able to send him to place easily and reward him once on the bed. He struggled a little when the trainer moved around but with a quick “ah ah” we could get him back on place. He lost some focus when a dog walked past with a trainer but he didn’t step off the bed. This is the next step for this skill, instead of working inside take it outside and work on some new environmental distractions. Focus: Distraction B

We recommend your next step should be…
