Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Bunjis first session we worked on his drop skill. This skill is good for putting him into a controlled position around distractions. For the first session we worked on his duration inside using tennis balls as a distraction. Bunji absolutely smashed his drop duration and didn’t break once, so we moved outside to work on his repetition. Again Bunji did really well however there were a few times he didn’t drop when asked. In this situation Bunji was told ‘uh uh’ and put into his drop. The next step for Bunji will be to continue working outside around dog distractions. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Bunjis second session we worked on his drop skill again. When going to put Bunji into the crate he reacted to the dog next to him so instead he was pulled away and put into his drop. While Bunji did remain in his drop and drop when asked he took a little while to calm down. To help Bunji calm down the trainer rewarded him whenever he looked at the dog and didn’t react as well as when he turned and made eye contact with the trainer. The next step for Bunji will be to keep working on his drops around dogs to reduce his reactivity. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Bunjis last session we worked on his loose lead. This is a good skill for walking without pulling. Bunji did really well and showed some awesome engagement towards the end of the session. At the begging he was pulling towards distraction and when this occurred he was told ‘uh uh’ and we turned away from the distraction. We tried to move to the grass however Bunji really struggled on the grass area as all the smells proved to be too much so the next step will be to start progressing to the grass slowly. Focus: Distraction B+
