Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In his first session, Buster focused on further developing his skill loose lead in a new environment (pony club). We challenged Buster in a new environment as he has been performing so well at the facility. Buster was initially distracted by the new environment, however, he did not pull. Buster quickly redirected his focus to show good engagement for a few minutes at a time. Busted successfully walked around the oval with two other dogs around. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In his second session, Buster focused on further developing his skill drop at the pony club. In this environment Buster struggled to perform his drop, he required a lure and struggled to maintain duration. As the session progressed he began to perform well but he was also getting quite tired. The trainer moved to a lower distracting environment (back to the kennel) to help him improve while he was tired. It is important to be aware of when he is tired as his perforce will decrease, moving to a lower distracting environment will help him perform better or give him a short break. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In his final session, Buster focused on further developing his skill place while practising greetings. We focused on this skill as he can become overexcited and jump up on people when meeting them. Buster responds well to the cue place and goes onto the bed. He can struggle to hold duration but with some guidance, he began to perform well. As the session progressed the trainer challenged him with approaching in a variety of different ways. When the trainer was excitable he broke easily, the trainer went back to basics and approached while calm. This was still challenging for Buster but he performed well. Focus: Distraction B
