Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: This session we focused on his place skill. We started inside for the first few minutes to get him engaged and then moved outside where some dogs were enjoying a Paddock & Play. We worked at his critical distance - where he could see dogs but remain engaged with trainer. It is important that when we are working with dogs with any form of reactivity (fear, frustration or over-arousal) that we do not push them over threshold. We want the dog to be in a good state of mind and not reacting - we need them to experience these triggers in a positive way to change their mindset. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: We switched up the skill to loose lead walking, still outside around the high energy dog distractions. Fui did well to engage with the trainer. If he did look at another dog we marked “yes,” started to create some distance and then rewarded him as he came back to us. This is why a reward marker (Yes) is super important, because it becomes an automatic response to look at you, even if he is slightly distracted. It also begins to change any negative emotions into more positive ones, releasing that little hit of dopamine - changing his mindset while looking at the trigger. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his last session Fui focused on his drops. We worked inside for this session as his drop skill still needs some work and lower distractions allowed us to build more duration. He did well to hold position for a few seconds while the trainer stood back up. It is important that we set him up for success, releasing him (“break”) before he breaks position (it is up to us to know when to release him and how long he can hold position for). If he does get a bit cheeky and keeps standing up out of position, we can introduce “uh uh” and guide him back into position with no reward (reset and try again). Focus: Repetition B

We recommend your next step should be…
