Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: This session was focused on ‘sending to place’ to ensure Jamie has a good understanding of the boundaries of place within the high distracting classroom (two other dogs training). Jamie performs well with send to place with minimal distractions and distance, Once the trainer began to take several steps backwards he began to struggle (not going to place). With some guidance he quickly began going onto place, despite the trainer’s distance. Once on place Jamie broke three times because of the high distracting environment. Next time the trainer would like to see Jamie show more engagement earlier in the session and not break place on the first three repetitions. This would be a great skill to practice at home. Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: This session was focused on further developing Jamie’s skill ‘drop’ while in a high distracting environment (classroom while two other dogs were training). Jamie initially struggled to engage with his trainer and follow the ‘drop’ command. With some guidance he quickly redirected his focus back onto the trainer and began to follow a lure into drop. This lure was reduced fast to the verbal cue ‘drop’ with a hand signal. Once engaged Jamie performs well with drop, he has good duration and ignored other distractions. Next time the trainer would like to see Jamie show more engagement earlier in the session. Continuing to practice his drops at home in a variety of high and low distracting environments will help him progress and proof his drop. Focus: Distraction C-
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: The third session was focused on building Jamie’s engagement within the low distracting classroom environment. The trainers have noticed Jamie can struggle to engage while walking and display challenging behaviors such as pulling. Jamie was initially distracted within the classroom, as the session progressed he slowly began to redirect his focus back onto his trainer and perform well. While performing loose lead Jamie struggles to engage with his trainer, he is easily distracted and can stop taking treats. Beginning to practice loose lead at home, walking up and down a hallway in your house will help him have a better understanding of the skill. Focus: Back to Basics C-
