Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Heras first session we worked on her drop duration. This session was conducted in the classroom around other dogs. The skill ‘drop’ is useful as it teaches them to relax around distractions. Hera did well in this session however she did struggle with dropping when asked. Once in her drop she would remain in it. If Hera didn’t drop when asked she was told ‘Uh Uh’ and put into that position. By the end of the session Hera was dropping when asked. The next step for Hera will be to continue working on her drop duration around other dogs. Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For Heras second session we worked on her place skill. This skill teaches them to relax around distractions. Hera did well with this skill by the end of the session. She stepped off of place a few times to begin with but after being put back onto place she started to focus, and her duration increased. The trainer was able to roll tennis balls and food along the floor without her stepping off. The next step for Hera will be to continue pushing her distractions. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Heras last session we worked on her loose lead walking. This skill is important as it allows walking without pulling. To begin with we started out on the grass however this proved to be too much for Hera, so we moved to the concreted outside area. Hera started focusing on the concrete area and offering good eye contact to the trainer. The next step for Hera will be to work up to the grass area. Focus: Distraction B
