Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Sit Comment: For his first session we worked on door manners as Jerry did not show good manners leaving the kennels. At the beginning of the session he struggled to hold his sit while the trainer even touched the doorknob but as the session progressed he was able to maintain his sit while doors were fully opened and only moving through when released. Jerry will try to be cheeky but firm boundaries and rules help him to settle down and start engaging with the trainer for his skills. At home make sure Jerry is in a control position (sit or drop) before moving through doors to help with his manners. Focus: Manners B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For his second session we worked on sending to place and place distractions with other dogs around. He did quite a good job at going to place from about a metre away though did get distracted once at the start. After a few reps though he was running to place. Once he was doing well at this we had him hold place while the trainer danced around him, threw a tennis ball and tempted him with a squeaky toy. He did quite well with all of these with only a few minor breaks and was rewarded with some fun time on place with the squeaky toy. He loved playing with it and was so good - when he tossed it just off the end he would wait for the trainer to out it back on place to continue playing which was fantastic! He did get highly stimulated and after the toy was removed started trying for his tail so we moved him into a drop duration for a few minutes to help him settle back down. He tried for his tail for the first minute but after interruptions did a great job of just relaxing in drop. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his last session we worked on some loose lead in the classroom alongside emergency drops (drops while walking). For the first few minutes he was very distracted by other dogs and had zero engagement (was also not taking treats). After going into a drop he did settle and focus better and After this was quite good with both his loose lead and drop skills. Keep working on these skills at home with distractions to build them stronger. Focus: Distraction B
