Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: George’s first session was loose lead walking. He is pull a number of times but the trainer kept the area that was walked quite small and changed direction when George pulled. As the session progressed progressed he started engaging with the trainer more which was fantastic to see. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Next up was drops. The trainer took George into the grassed area. George was quite distracted by the animal smells and didn’t want to drop the first couple of times. Using the Uh uh word and a little leash pressure meant George worked out what was required. At the start of the session George struggled to hold position but the trainer increased the frequency of treats and George was able to hold position while the trainer moved around him. Towards the end of the session George started barking at another dog that was quite a distance away and he didn’t want to hold position. The trainer used the foot brake (placing a foot on the lead) so George self corrected. When George’s stopped barking the trainer rewarded heavily and George was able to walk out of the area without barking again! Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Last up for George was place. The trainer did this session inside while another dog was training. George didn’t react at all to this dog but was breaking place from trainer movement. The trainer once again increased the frequency of reward and George started really thinking about what he needed to do. Another staff member walked in and around George and George held place and did a great job of staying on the bed. At home make sure you change where place is to help increase and change the distractions. Focus: Distraction C+
