Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her first session the trainer being new to Frankie wanted to make sure they formed a good bond, being a bit nervous this is especially important with little Frankie. She was taken into the classroom today while it was empty so it was just her and the trainer. Here they did a little bit of loose lead walking with Frankie. She wasn’t eating treats and I know she hasn’t been interested in the ones we provide here, we highly recommend supplying some treats you know she loves and fasting her the night before and morning that she comes in for training, food motivated dogs are the easiest to train! Besides being nervous and not taking treats she actually loose lead walks quiet well and follows the lead pressure well! The trainer was able to get her approaching for scratches and sniffs and walking nicely next to him by the end of the session. Focus: Confidence C
Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building) Comment: For her second session today the trainer took Frankie to our confidence course! This is an obstacle course designed to let the dogs walk over different textures and objects helping them raise their confidence! She did well this session, still not taking treats however she was following the trainer with a lot more enthusiasm! In order to get Frankie moving through the course the trainer found that she actually followed them, so they first went through the course a few times with Frankie following until eventually she went through on her own! This was great for Frankie and she seems to have opened up just that little bit more after this session. Focus: Confidence X
Skill learnt: Exposure Comment: For her last session the trainer wanted to get her involved in our weekly activity this week of making some art! To do this they would first take Frankie’s paw in their hand, which by this third session she was allowing the trainer to do which is a great sign her confidence is rising! They then dipped her paw into non-toxic water based paint and then put her paw on the piece of paper! This is not only a great confidence building exercise it also gets her use to strangers touching her paws which will come in handy when going to the vets or groomers! All in all while she was a little timid today the trainer was able to work her up to following them with the lead which is great for Frankie especially since she has never worked with this trainer! Contuine training will continue to improve her confidence and basic obedience skills. Focus: Confidence X
