Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: In her first session, Hera focused on building her confidence and conditioning other dogs with the confidence course we made for today. We focused on this for Hera to have some fun while building her confidence. Hera was happy to interact with some sections of the course, however other sections she was nervous and hesitant of. With some patients and treats, she began to walk through these sections. As the session progressed she began to fly through the course and have a great time. During this session, there was another dog in the classroom, while being happy and enjoying her training she is further conditioning to the other dog. Focus: Confidence B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In her second session, Hera focused on further developing her loose lead walking while conditioning to dogs. We focused on this skill as it was a great opportunity to further her conditioning around dogs, there were two dogs training in the classroom, one was stationary the other was moving. Hera performed very well, at different stages of her training she did get distracted by the dog but showed no signs of reactivity. When distracted the trainer redirected her focus with her skill search or we began to observe her choosing to redirect her focus on her own. The trainers were very proud of Miss Hera during this session, especially since one of the dogs was quite excitable. Focus: Conditioning B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In her final session, Hera focused on further developing her skill drop while outside. We focused on this skill to challenge her under high distractions (birds, other people, dogs barking). Hera was initially distracted by this environment and struggled to engage with her trainer. To help redirect her focus the trainer used a lure to guide Hera into a drop. This worked well, she began to focus and the lure was slowly faded. When in high distraction areas (on the grass) she continued to struggle. Focus: Distraction C+
