Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In his first session, Henry focused on further developing his drop with duration under distractions. We focused on this skill as he is a little sore on his back leg and to build his impulse control. Henry responded to his drop cue well and went straight into drop. The trainer challenged him with greetings, lawn mower and dog distractions. He did break drop twice at the beginning of the session, but with some guidance began to maintain his position well. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In his second session, Henry focused on further developing his place with distractions while conditioning Henry to pedestrian crossing sound. Henry was not bothered by the pedestrians crossing their noses. To challenge him further The trainer used treats as distractions today, the trainer threw food in front of him while he remained on place. This was challenging for Henry but he progressed well and began to maintain his position despite what the trainer was doing. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: In his final session, Henry focused on learning the new skill tug or rope pull. We focused on this skill to build his problems solving skills and to have a chill session. Henry performed very well, he interacted with the rope straight away, touching it with his nose. After a few minutes, the trainer began to stop rewarding this behaviour to encourage him to try something new. Henry became slightly frustrated and tried different behaviours such as pawing at the rope, then he opened his mouth onto the rope. He successfully did this several times throughout the session. Focus: Foundation C+
