Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For her first session we worked on Hera's place skill to help with her manners around other dogs. After barking a bit initially she settled well into training mode and didn't react to the dogs after that. Her place skill was really good, she didn't break with tennis balls being thrown, movement from people or from a streamer being waved past. She settled well near the end and even started to have a mini snooze sesh! Next time we'd like to be able to push her a bit further with high distractions - keep up the great work at home with her place skill under distractions. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her second session we worked on Hera's loose lead skill. We started off in the classroom as a less distracting environment - she did quite well until another trainer walked by a few times. After she had settled down into a nice walk again we took her into the cattery. For the first 2 laps she was highly distracted and pulled a lot of the lead to sniff everything. During the session she did improve and gave a lot of her focus back to the trainer. Next time we'd like to see her less distracted in the cattery and able to better focus on the handler when walking. At home, continue rewarding her for focus and engagement during her walks. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning Comment: Hera has gotten so good at her muzzle! Today we focused on duration with the muzzle - having her hold her nose in it longer both with and without straps done up. She did really well with this, especially in the first half of the session. In the second half she did try to get it off with her paws a bit more so this still needs a bit of work. Next time we'd like to see her duration increase and her not try to get it off as often. At home keep using the muzzle with treats to keep it a positive experience with her. Focus: Duration B
