Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her first session we worked on loose lead outside. Hera didn't take long to settle down into her walk after a few turns and had great engagement throughout. She did get a little distracted by a dog in the distance but did well to just watch and not react. We also worked on emergency drops while walking - Hera really struggled with this and didn't go straight into a drop any of the times she was asked (she usually had to be told off before she would focus and drop for the trainer). Practice emergency drops while walking in low distraction environments to help her focus and listen while walking. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For her second session we worked on her skateboard skill. As Hera is getting a good understanding of this skill we worked on having her get on the skateboard from a controlled drop and fading the lure. She does occasionally get overexcited and not get herself balanced first so by utilising a control position first she had to slow down a bit and think a bit more about how she was approaching the skateboard. When she gets the balance right she is quite good at continuing the movement of the skateboard without any fear. Keep up with this skill at home to continue building her focus and confidence. Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For her last session we did a back to basics session with emergency drops as Hera had been struggling with these. We started off doing some with lures, then progressing to just low hand signals and then lighter hand signals. She progressed well so would benefit from going over the basics every now and then with her drops to help maintain them in more distracting environments. Focus: Repetition B
