Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Holly’s first session was drops in the kitchen. She was quite distracted at first because of the smell and food close by. However, using the yes marker more frequently helped Holly stay in position longer. She did break position a couple of times when other staff walked by or in the room but using the Uhuh word, holly was able to get in position again. The trainer was able to walk out of the room and come straight back in without Holly breaking. Next time it would be good to work on more people distractions in the same area. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Next up was loose lead walking. The trainer did this in the kennel aisle. This is a very noisy environment and Holly does struggle here. By giving her a job to do in this environment helps keep her focus and not worry about what is going on around her. She was very focused during walking and did a great job. Because she was doing well the trainer added in emergency drops. She was a little slow at first but was soon dropping well, to the point that the trainer dropped the lead and kept on walking. The trainer then started adding in recalls. After dropping a couple of times Holly broke. Usually when nearby dogs were barking. However on a whole she did a great job in an environment she’s not totally comfortable with. Next time it would be good to continue working on this in the kennels and see Holly not break position as much. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Last up was hanky pull. Holly moved on very quickly to just touching it to biting the hanky. At this point the trainer put the hanky in a witches hat and worked with Holly to get Holly to pull the hanky out of the cone. Towards the end of the session Holly was making the connection with what she needed to do. The next goal will be to get her to pull the hanky out in one motion rather than several. Great session! Focus: Repetition C+
