Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Charlie’s first session today we worked on his loose lead skill outside. He was super excited to get started so we worked on getting his engagement so he would stop chewing on the lead. After a couple minutes of luring him to our side and giving him treats he gave up trying to eat the lead. He is really good with his loose lead walking so we were able to walk all around the property. He pulled a couple times to smell a tree but we were able to redirect his behaviour into a drop position and then release him to sniff the tree without him pulling towards it. He did really well, he just needs practice in different environments and to learn that he doesn’t have to pull to smell things if he offers alternative behaviours first! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For his second session today we worked on sending him to place. Firstly we worked in the classroom sending him from different points and also tested his impulse control with food! He broke a couple times when the treats fell just within reach, otherwise he still did super well and managed to resist the urge! Since he was doing so well inside we decided to work on it outside. We were able to send him to place from the full length of the long line. To push this skill further it could be practiced in high distracting environments! Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Spin Comment: For his last training session today we worked on his spin skill! We tested to see if he had any word or hand signal recognition but he didn’t appear to have any. To work on his spins we simply just lure them in a circle and then finish up in front of the trainer! He picked this up super quick so we decided to practice while also doing loose lead walking. To do this we start walking along and then randomly lure him away from us (to his left) and around to finally end up back to our side walking along. He did really well with this and picked it up quickly! This just needs practice but he already has shown some good progress! Focus: Repetition B+

We recommend your next step should be…
