Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: For Jenson’s first session we worked on conditioning him to putting the lead on. When getting Jenson from the kennels it took a couple of minutes to get him to put his head through the slip lead. He had all his weight on his back legs ready to step backwards and was very nervous. After luring him through for a couple minutes the trainer was able to put the lead on him however decided that he would benefit from some conditioning. Once in the classroom the trainer grabbed another slip lead and continued to continue him to placing his head through. Towards the end he did so well and was so much more comfortable with putting the lead on. The next step for Jenson will be to continue working on conditioning him to placing the lead on by luring him through the hoop. Focus: Conditioning X
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For Jenson’s second session we worked on his confidence using the wobble board. Jenson started off trying to avoid stepping onto the wobble board as he would walk around it to get the treat rather than follow it on to get the treat. We started off getting him to place just one paw up and then asked for two once he was more confident with one. Towards the end of the session Jenson was stepping up onto the board with both front paws and holding it for a duration. The next step for Jenson will be to continue working on his confidence and push for him putting 3 paws on. Focus: Confidence X
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Jenson’s last session we worked on his loose lead and drops outside on the grass. This is good for his obedience skills so he doesn’t pull on the lead and you’re also able to place him in a controlled position while out on a walk. Jenson started off very distracted and was sniffing/pulling while walking however his drops were still really good. After a couple uses of ‘uh uh’ he started to walked nicely next to the trainer. He maintained good eye contact for majority of the session! The next step for Jenson will be to continue working on his loose lead and drops with people walking by. Focus: Distraction B+
