Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Josie’s first session was loose lead walking. She was very distracted straight out of the kennels and had no engagement with the trainer at all. Utilizing the top carpark the trainer worked in a small area and changed direction frequently. Using treats as well Josie started to engage more with the trainer. A couple of times she lost focus due to other dogs but a change of direction and the use of treats for her back on track easily. At home train on lead in the backyard, with low distractions. The goal would be to get Josie walking well in the back yard before heading out into the big world. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Next up was place. This was done over looking the road. The trainer created a bit of distance between place and the road. This allowed Josie to be less distracted by the traffic. She did a great job and was very focused on the trainer. The trainer then moved the place bed closer to the traffic. Josie was still able to focus with cars going passed but trucks she couldn’t resist. The trainer created a little more distance again and Josie was able to focus on the trainer again. Make sure you use high value treats as Josie is quite food motivated, so use this to your advantage to keep Josie’s focus on you. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Final session the trainer decided to train back near the road but with the drop skill. Josie clearly knows drop but struggled to hold the position for any period of time. The trainer ensured there was a bigger distance from the traffic for this skill and Josie progressed well. When doing this at home build duration slowly with low distractions to ensure Josie gets those wins Focus: Distraction C+
