Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her first session we worked on a bit of loose lead outside to settle her down. She did tend to go a bit ahead of the trainer even when walking nicely so we worked on shaping her to walk more besides the trainer. We also did a few emergency drops - she went into them fairly quickly but did tend to drop in front rather than at the side. In the classroom we worked around another dog, she did so well with this! You could even see a moment she was going to react but chose not to! Good job Ellie! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her second session we took Ellie next door to the Pony club oval to work on her loose lead with another dog around. Ellie was very overstimulated going onto the oval and it took about 5 minutes for her to start engaging with the trainer and not jump around everywhere. After another 5 minutes working at a distance from the other dog and turning each time she pulled she finally settled into a nice loose lead with only some minor pulling. We can continue to work her in this environment to prepare her further for classes. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For her last session we finished off with some fun with our big wobble board. We worked on luring Ellie onto it with all 4 paws - she was quite uncertain when it started moving but recovered quickly to find her balance. She did have some reactivity towards another dog but only after that dog started reacting to her which is still good for her that she was able to stay calmer longer! We finished off with some place to relax her after the other dog left. Focus: Confidence B
