Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In her first session, Hera focused on further developing her skill loose lead with drop, while outside near another dog training. We focused on this skill to proof her drops and engagement under distractions. Hera was initially distracted by the other dog and showed minimal engagement. Utilising luring and her skill spin and drop she began to slowly redirect her focus and perform well. She did struggle with duration while in drop but progressed well through the session. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning Comment: In her second session, Hera focused on further conditioning the muzzle while practising her skill touch (targeting a spoon with her nose). We focused on this skill as when Hera is wearing the muzzle she struggles to perform her obedience skills, this is an easier skill she can perform to help her gain confidence. Hera performed well, she followed the treats into the muzzle and was happy for the trainer place the muzzle on her nose. She did initially struggle to touch the spoon but as the session progressed she showed good improvement. This would be great to practise at home while she is wearing her muzzle. Focus: Conditioning C+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: In her final session, Hera focused on learning the new skill skateboard with a spooky twist, this was a pumpkin covered skateboard. We focused on this skill to build engagement and build her confidence around spooky items. Hera performed very well, she touched the skateboard straight away. She quickly followed a lure to place both from paws onto the skateboard, despite the pumpkin. She was progressing so well the trainer began to slowly move the skateboard, Hera took this in her stride and remained on the skateboard, as long as she continued to receive treats. Focus: Foundation B
