|We focused on
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)
|Comment: Mr Dusty’s first session today focused on his loose lead walking. We started in the pet retreat, utilising the long corridor - also plenty of dog distractions (it was also nice and cool in there). Dusty showed the trainer some great engagement and didn’t seemed bothered by the dogs around him. We also made sure to practice his door manners at each gate/door we came to - asking him to sit then releasing him through the open door.
|Skill learnt: Place Training
|Comment: For this session we worked on his place training. We had two beds set up and worked on sending him between the two! He did so well with this, watching the trainer carefully so he knew which place to go to! When sending him between places we don’t have to release him, we can just point to it. If moving on to another skill however, make sure to release him!
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down
|Comment: This session we practiced some drop durations with trainer distraction. Our goal this session was to be able to step over him while he remained in a drop! He was a bit unsure of the trainer getting so close but after lots of small attempts we finally were able to step over him! We made sure to reward him heavily. After we did it the first time we were able to keep doing it, going faster and faster each time! This is a great way to proof his drops!
We recommend your next step should be…
A: Outstanding (90 – 100%) I understand my training, Neat & Complete! Ready to move on to higher difficulty & distraction
B: Great Work (80-89%) I mostly understand, Almost neat & complete! Needs practice in some areas. Mild distractions
C: Well Done (70-79%) Some good progress. Needs work, but on my way. Still learning. Low distractions.
D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
E: Unable to Progress. Needs major focus, seek further options to assist.
X: Not gradable, the focus was on Enrichment, Socialisation & Engagement.
