Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: To begin the day, Hera practiced her ‘place training’, focusing on duration with plenty of dog and other added distractions. She did really well! When the trainer felt Hera was about to react, she caught her just before by throwing some treats on the bed to distract her, which worked beautifully! Once the dogs were put away, the trainer added in other distractions such as skateboards, hula hoops and more! The biggest temptation by far was spelling out her own name in kibble, she was a very antsy girl during this process and broke once, but she went back on with the use of her non-reward marker “ah ah”. Keep practicing her distractions on place at home! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Next up, Hera worked on her ‘drop’ skill with plenty of dog distractions. She did really well! There were 2 dogs out and 5 in crates. Hera ignored the 2 small dogs in the crates closest to her beautifully and only minded the dogs out if they were too excitable. When Hera was getting antsy the trainer would utilise her ‘search’ skill, which worked a charm and helped her settle. A large dog in a crate started growling and reacting to another trainer in the room, causing all the dogs to be set off, but Hera was able to remain calmish (with the use of her search skill) and did not bark once! She would try pulling towards the other dogs, but was able to regain her focus on her trainer when needed. Keep up the amazing work with both these skills! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: To finish off, Hera worked on her ‘loose lead’ walking in the classroom with dog distractions. She did super well! It took her a couple minutes at first to get her attention on the trainer, but once she had it, it was magnificent! The trainer utilised her search skill again when needed, but Hera was always able to bounce back after. Keep up the awesome work with her. She responds very well to food! Focus: Distraction B+
