Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In his first session, Hugo focused on further developing his skill of loose lead walking around the facility while multiple dogs were nearby. We focused on this skill to build his engagement and challenge him around high distractions. Hugo was initially distracted by the environment and showed little engagement, however, he was not pulling. Although showing minimal engagement he was waking well. As the session progressed his engagement improved. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: In his second session, Hugo focused on further developing his recall while outside. Hugo was initially very distracted by the outside environment and struggled to show engagement. The trainer used the first few minutes to play engagement games to build his focus. This worked very well. For the remainder of the session, we focused on his recall. Hugo comes well when he hears his name, however, he struggles to sit at the end when returned to the trainer. As this was challenging for him the trainer went back a step and rewarded him for returning without asking for a controlled position. We also used play as his reward for this session as he loves it so much. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Exposure Comment: In his final season, Hugo focused on further developing his skill drop with duration within the classroom. We focused on this as he can still struggle with his duration when in drop. Hugo responded well to the cue drop throughout this season but did require a hand signal to move into position. He initially struggled to hold duration but with some guidance from the trainer, he began to hold it well. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home. Focus: Duration B
