Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Callie’s first session today we worked on her drops in the cattery. She was a bit distracted/excited when we first got her from the kennels but once we got to the cattery her focus really switched on. From here we practiced her drops all around the cattery, we tested her duration and also impulse control. When we tested her duration we stayed by her side but for distraction we would walk around her to test her knowledge of the skill. Callie’s drops have shown great improvement, she still needs a visual cue but is getting quicker and quicker. Keep working on her drop skill with mild distractions! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Callie’s second session today was focused on her place skill in the classroom. We had the perfect opportunity with a quiet and calm dog training at the same time. We got Callie straight onto place and she did so well, she looked at the other dog but did not react! Working with calm dogs around is what she needs to build up her engagement and impulse control. We were able to get her on place and walk around the bed, release her, send her back etc. Callie seems to really enjoy this skill and shows awesome engagement while on place! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For Callie’s last session today we worked on her paws up skill! We were finally able to get both her front feet onto the plastic pod. It took a lot of luring and patience but by the end of the session she was doing it repetitively. This is a great skill to keep them engaged and also helps them build confidence in their balance and with new surfaces! Keep practicing this one with Callie as it will really help her come out of her shell. She did so well today and has shown great progress in all of her skills! Focus: Foundation C+
