Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Play Comment: Henry’s first session today focused on his RLGL drops. We had to find out what he got excited about, we tried tennis balls, tug toys and squeaky toys but found that the flirt pole worked the best. He showed the most interest in this, we would move it around and have a little game, as he got more and more excited we would stop the game and ask for a drop. His drops are so good that he had no problem settling down. Keep working on these at home, perhaps he has a favourite toy that always gets him going! Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Henry’s second session today worked on his emergency drops. We focused on these as it’s a great skill to use if you see a bike coming or know he might react. It’s important to be aware of your surroundings, if you can see a bike coming and have time either work on a skill that keeps his mind elsewhere or ask for a drop and reward him for remaining focused on you. Since his drops are really good already we worked on his speed and ability to do it around people and dog distractions. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: His last session today worked on his loose lead walking outside. Henry has awesome engagement with the trainer but still had a few moments of distraction. These distractions were nice smelling trees or people. When he started to pull towards we would simply change direction, encourage engagement and ask for a skill to bring his focus back. Once he was focused on us we could continue the walking and engagement around the distractions. Keep working on this one at home but he is doing well! Focus: Distraction B+
