Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session today Hudson worked on his loose lead walking outside and in the cattery. He was a bit distracted to start with and wasn’t showing much engagement. After a few minutes he calmed down and started to focus, as soon as he realised that engagement was the goal he switched on! After about 5 minutes outside we moved to the cattery to test him with different distractions. He did really well in the cattery, his engagement improved and he couldn’t care less about the cats, birds and smells! Keep pushing him with different distractions and focus on getting him engaged quicker! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Spin Comment: For Hudsons second session today we worked on his spin skill, we had to figure out which way he had been practicing so we could continue. Hudson needed a lure to start with but we were quickly able to make the hand movement smaller and smaller. By the end of the session we also started to introduce a verbal signal. As he is doing the skill reliably we felt he was ready for the verbal cue! Keep practicing his spins he is doing so well! Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For Hudson’s last session today we worked on his paws up skill but on a soft spikey rubber pod. He was quite hesitant to do this today so we did lots of luring over and above the pod. He managed to do it a few times with one foot but never got two on there. We did go back to an easier pod a couple times to help him understand the task. It’s really important to keep pushing him with new surfaces because it’s great for his confidence. He will get there eventually but it might just take some time to get used to the sensation. Focus: Confidence C+
