Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For Jerry’s first session today we worked on sending him to place. He was so excited to get out of the kennels so we needed to work on get him focused and in training mode! Once we reached the classroom Jerry had gotten most of his zoomies out of his system but was still eager to take treats and do some training. We went straight into his place training and he did so well! We were able to send him to place from approximately 2-3 metres away. We practiced with different distractions to really push his skill knowledge. We used scooters tennis balls and all sorts while he walked to place. Keep working on his place skill as he really seems to enjoy it. Really push him and see how far he can go, as he is such a clever boy! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: The second session for Jerry today focused on his drops in the cattery. Since it was quite humid and warm today it was nice to go somewhere cool but with plenty of distractions and smells to push his skills. We let Jerry have a little explore before training just so he was aware of his surroundings. After a couple minutes of exploring we practiced his drops. We practiced with trainer distractions as well. Putting him in a drop and then hiding around a corner, jumping around and even doing drops near rabbit hutches and cats behind doors. He did so well with this and showed only a little interest in the other animals. Keep pushing this skill because he is really good at it! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Jerry’s last session today was in the cattery again. We focused on his loose lead walking. Anytime he pulled ahead the trainer changed direction and encouraged him to follow. If Jerry looked to the trainer he was rewarded. Using these two methods quickly allowed Jerry to understand what we wanted and we spent the entire session practicing his loose lead walking! Whenever Jerry got distracted by his tail we stopped the behaviour and quickly asked for a drop, this allowed Jerry to calm down before we proceeded. Focus: Distraction B+
