Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Buster was SO excited to begin training which led to some jumping and pulling behaviour. Due to this the trainer started this session the moment she approached. He quickly settled down and they worked on door manners around the facility. He can barge through doors quite easily so this was the main focus, getting him to wait until given the 'ok' to walk through. Buster responds SO well to training! His understanding of communication is great but just needs more work on his markers within a stimulating environment. As they headed toward the classroom the trainer changed pace, did random turns and walked around dog and people distractions. He would get excited at first but his response to his name was AMAZING! Focus: Manners B+
Skill learnt: Targeting (touch) Comment: To begin this session the trainer focused on charging Busters marker 'yes' within the distracting classroom (4 dogs and 3 trainers). He struggled to respond initially however as the session continued he progressed well. Once he was responding well the the marker the trainer began target training. This involved a targeting stick in front of him and as soon as he touched it with his nose he was marked and rewarded. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: During this session Buster was struggling with duration on place within the distracting classroom. The trainer went back to basics to increase duration and he was also encouraged to remain with a delicious Lickimat. He quickly settled and progressed well with the duration, people and dog distractions. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: Between sessions Buster was relaxing in crate within the classroom. Focus: Desensitisation A+
