Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Session one with Clancy we started with his place skill working in the cattery. The trainer started with using distance as a distraction working up to sound, ball and toy. Clancy isn’t ready to start working in the classroom with other dogs around as it’s too high of a distraction for him, we have to work up to that level of distraction to ensure we are setting Clancy up for success. Clancy did struggle to begin with although after a few corrections he did a lot better! One of Clancy weaknesses are tennis balls, so the trainer increased rewards while bouncing balls past. Clancy did very well! Clancy wasn’t that keen on treats as a reward so the trainer used “Play” as a reward which helped majorly. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For session two with Clancy we practiced his Loose lead skill in the air conditioned cattery. Clancy did start off with little engagement so the trainer put him into a drop and rewarded to gain engagement. Once released his loose lead was a lot better! Clancy did really well in the cattery showing high engagement with the trainer. To practice loose lead at home and to set Clancy up for success it’s important to master loose lead inside, for example the house first! Then moving to the front or backyard followed by the driveway and then starting on the street and eventually building up to further walks. This skill will take some time but starting little by little with help build this into a strong skill. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Session three with Clancy we practiced his place skill in the classroom! There was no dogs training although there were other dogs in the crates. Clancy had great engagement with the trainer and did do well. The trainer used play as his rewards because he values toys more then treats! Clancy ended session three so well! Focus: Distraction A+
