Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In his first session, Chema focused on further developing his skill loose lead walking around the pet retreat facility. We focused on this skill to further his engagement around distractions. Chema was initially excited by training and struggled to engage with his trainer, however utilizing his known skills of spin and drop to redirect his focus. As the sessions progressed his engagement continued to improve and successfully walked through the kennel with good engagement and low reactivity. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In his second session, Chema focused on further developing his skill emergency drops around the pet retreat facility. Chema initially performed well, showing good engagement, and responding to the drop cue. To increase his speed going into drop he trainer used a hand signal to help guide him to drop in the correct spot at the correct time. Chema responded well to this and showed several repetitions of good emergency drops. As the session progressed Chema’s engagement began to reduce as the surrounding distractions increased (cars, people, dogs, mum). The trainer went back to basic and focused on engagement. Focus: Obedience C
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In his final session, Chema focused on further developing his skill drop around dog distractions and the pet retreat facility. We focused on this skill as he struggled throughout today’s sessions. Chema performed very well, he showed great engagement and response to the drop cue. He walked and dropped past two dogs in proximity with no issues. The trainer was very impressed with his engagement and perform in this session. Focus: Obedience B+
