Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In his first session, Henry focused on further developing his skill loose lead around distractions, including dogs, people and cats. We focused on this skill to build his engagement and improve his challenging behaviour of pulling on the lead. Henry was initially very excited to be back training and struggled to show engagement. To help redirect his focus the trainer went back to basics and introduced a lure as well as utilising his known skill drop. This worked well, he quickly redirected his focus and showed great engagement. Once engaged Hanry performed very well, he ignored all distractions. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In his second session, Henry focused on further developing his skill drop around food and dog distractions (multiple dogs training in the classroom). We focused on this skill to build his impulse control around food and dogs. Henry responds well to the verbal cue drop. He was initially distracted by the food but did not break drop. The trainer was successfully able to spell his name in food in front of him while he remained in drop. When asking for drop around food he is distracted but continues to perform well. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In his final session, Henry focused on further developing his skill place while on a towel. We focused on this skill to challenge his understanding of place surrounding different objects. Henry performed very well, he walked straight onto the towel and held good duration. He quickly was going to the towel when the trainer asked for place. As he was performing so well the trainer began to challenge him further by sending him to the towel. Henry continued to perform well and go straight onto the towel, while the trainer was at a distance of 5 meters. The trainer was very impressed with Henry during this session. Focus: Obedience A
