Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session today we worked on his loose lead walking outside. He wasn’t eating any treats so this is a great way to help him settle in and focus on the trainer. Today we really focused on his positioning while walking, in the carpark he nailed this and remained by the trainer side with a slack lead. As soon as we started to get close to the driveway he would pull in front as he knows that where his owner picks him up from. We did lots of repetitions backwards and forwards to help him understand what it is we want. After a while he was sticking by our side no matter where we were walking, there weren’t any dog or people distractions present so that will be something to introduce as he gets better! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Hudson’s second session today worked on his around skill. This skill utilises place and a cone, Hudson starts on place and is lured off, around a cone and back to place. This end goal of this skill is to send them off around an object and then back to you. Hudson did well with this and responded well to verbal praise and good scratches under his jumper! When the trainer gets really excited he also perks up and becomes more relaxed in the environment. Keep practicing this one at home, the cone was about 1 metre away from the bed and he is still following a lure! Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: For Hudson’s last session today we worked on his middles skill around Roxy while she was practicing place. The first couple times we had to lure Hudson into position but after that he knew exactly what to do. He did get a little distracted by Roxy when we were right next to her bed but we created a little bit of distance and worked at that threshold! Hudson has improved heaps in this skill you can start to build duration and work from different angles. Focus: Repetition B+
