Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Holly’s first session today was all about her loose lead walking outside around lots of distractions. We weaved in and out of trees and around other dogs training. Holly’s engagement was awesome, she checked in frequently with the trainer. We didn’t reward her each time she looked at us but we would still mark “yes” so she knows she is still doing the right thing. We can start to lessen the amount of treats they get so they don’t become reliant on them. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For her second session today Holly worked on her paws up skill for some confidence building. We used the large wobble board, the end goal of this session was to get all four feet on it. She managed to get her front feet on fine but was very hesitant to put her back feet on. She did do it successfully a few times but jumped straight off. This skill will need lots of repetition to build her confidence and duration. As she gets used to the sensation under her feet she will feel more comfortable. Focus: Confidence B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Holly’s last session today was focused on her quoits skill. We worked mainly on getting her to pick the ring up and bring it closer to the trainer. She seemed very tired by this session and she kept laying down, to encourage her to keep going the trainer would throw a treat and also move around to keep things interesting. Holly was happy to pick the ring up but instead of bringing it closer to us she would just play around with it. For this we would mark yes the second she stepped towards us (with ring in mouth), this encouraged her to drop it and get the treat. Keep working on this one, it’s a tricky skill with lots of bits put together but she is showing promising progress. Focus: Foundation C+
