Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session today the trainer took him into the classroom to work on his loose lead skills. Yesterday he was a little thrown off by our work place grey hounds so this along with the rain was why the trainer worked in the classroom. He was much better today being able to follow commands while loose lead walking around the grey hounds. While focusing a little bit on the grey hounds the trainer was still able to easily move with George and found he was even doing drops on command while still looking at the other dogs, we just have to watch him and get his attention before his brain is allowed to wander! His engagement was fantastic and he has been set up for a successful rest of his day! Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For his second session today the trainer worked on his place skill with a focus on distraction and sending to place. He did well with sending to place today, the trainer was able to both walk away from him while he was on place building distance but was also able to send him to place from the same distance, this is really good for George! The other criteria today was distraction, the trainer really amped it up today going all out crazy around George with movement and sounds and all sorts of crazy toys, he helped strong today, he did need a refresher on the rules of place but he only needed this once, one reminded that all 4 paws had to stay on the place bed he did amazing! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: (agility training)For his last session today the trainer wanted to do a little agility training with George. This is training that has a focus on physical movement and obstacle work! To start him out the trainer set up a few obstacles for him to go through including some cones to weave through, a step to walk over and a hoop to go through. Since he is just starting the trainer is still luring him through this obstacles with a treat however his enthusiasm to go through the course is what really matters and George loved this today! Think of things at home that you could use as an obstacle course with George and lure him through it until he has gotten a good understanding of the course then try run him through it! Focus: Repetition C+
