Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For his first session we started work on the basics of place. Hudson did struggle with engagement and was uninterested in treats during this session so we used a lot of encouragement and pats as rewards to get him onto the bed. He did get off quite frequently at the start but did start to settle throughout the session and even started lying down on the bed on his own to relax. At home practice the basics of the place skill with a focus on building duration and conditioning his markers/release word. Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: As Hudson still wasn't very interested in treats this session we worked on some confidence building and conditioning to the new environment by practising loose lead in different environments (classroom, cattery and outside). Hudson did a great job with this - he walked really well in all of the different environments! He did have a few barks when on the grass near the carpark when he could see a dog but it was very easy to redirect his focus back on the trainer. He also did a few good sits while out near the carpark but does need to work a bit on his duration. At home practice loose lead with sits and drops to help increase his engagement as this is an area he could improve on when walking. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his last session Hudson started taking treats so we were able to start working on his drop with another dog out in the classroom. He did bark twice at it but then was able to ignore it while working with the trainer. He initially wouldn't get fully into a drop so we worked on tidying up the skill and building duration. He did quite well with this so keep working on his duration at home so we can start building the distraction level to use around dogs. Focus: Duration B
