Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her first session today Daphne worked on her excitement and loose lead walking around her sister. When first retrieving her we focused on keeping her settled and asking for door manners (sitting before going through door). She did quite well with this and was able to go straight into her loose lead outside without a hitch! We were able to get her all happy and excited by giving her good scratches and then going straight back into walking nicely. This teaches her that although she is getting really excited she has to still focus. Daphne did well around her sister today and has shown great progress! Keep up the good work. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: Daphne’s second session today focused on her “peekaboo” skill. This skill gets them to put their head through a circle created by our arm and body. We worked in a calm environment to help her focus on the skill. We used a lure to get her head through and she did really well. She showed no hesitation with being close to the trainer and loved all the treats. Keep working on this one at home as she did well and it’s a great skill to have if you need them to come to you. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Targeting (touch) Comment: Her last session today was focused on touch/target. For this we used a piece of rope and simply presented it to her. Any behaviour she showed towards it we would mark yes and reward. By the end of the session she was repetitively touching it with her rope. The end goal of this skill is getting her to bite and pull on the rope. We can use this skill to teach them to ring a bell attached to a rope or even open a door! She picked this us quickly but was getting tired, since it was the last session we ended with some much needed cuddles! Focus: Foundation C+

We recommend your next step should be…
