Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: For her first session we took Hera into the classroom with another dog present and went straight into her search skill. She did so well with this! She would occasionally pull towards the other dog when it was moving but a quick scatter of treats and the "search" verbal cue and she came right back. For the last few minutes while the classroom was empty we had her walking right next to dogs in crates using search with no issues. Great work on this skill, keep practising it so that the verbal cue and association is strong. Focus: Conditioning B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her second session we worked on loose lead with emergency drops in the classroom with another dog around. At the start she did need some search scatters to redirect from looking at the other dog but as the session progressed she was good at ignoring it and just doing normal loose lead. Her drops were slow at the start but improved by the end. However she does have a tendency to drop in front of the trainer so needs to have a low hand signal to help her drop at the side. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For her last session we did start on the find it skill variation from the reactivity workshop (having Hera press her nose on an object and leave it there). She was good at starting to build duration but then got distracted by a new dog. Due to her reactivity we spent the remainder of the session using search and the drop skill which helped redirect her focus. Focus: Distraction B
