Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In her first session, Callie focused on further developing her skill loose lead to the classroom. We focused on this skill as Callie can struggle to engage when walking and displays challenging behaviours of pulling. When in the classroom she was initially overexcited and struggled to follow a lure, the trainer used her known skill of drop to help her settle before beginning her loose lead. After only a few moments she had settled and was following a lure. When following the lure Callie walked well, she can become easily distracted by other people and dogs but was redirected quickly using her known skill drop. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In her second session, Callie focused on further developing her skill place with duration under distractions. We focused on this skill to help Callie relax and settle while in a highly distracting environment. Callie initially struggled to hold duration but with some guidance, she quickly began to maintain it well. The trainer challenged her with food distractions by spelling her name with food in front of her. Callie was interested in the food but did not break place. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In her final session, Callie focused on further developing her skill drop within the classroom. Callie shows a good knowledge of the skill drop, she can struggle with her duration under distractions. The trainer started with low distractions, human movement and distance, she performed well. She initially broke once but maintained it well as the session progressed. As she was performing well the trainer began to increase the distractions by bouncing balls and going past on a skateboard and scooter. Callie did not break drop despite these high distractions. Focus: Distraction B+
