Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Kali’s first session today we had him working in the cattery. He was super distracted to start with and was pulling and sniffing everywhere. We were able to get his attention eventually and put him in a dog position. When the cats moved or made a noise we had to work hard to get his engagement. Once he looked at the trainer we rewarded him and he would show consistent engagement. After a few minutes of doing this we were able to release him and put him back in a drop. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Kali’s second session today we worked on his drop and loose lead skill in the kennel near the outside runs. He did really well with this, he did get a little bit distracted with all the smells but he would quickly re-engage with the trainer. He did so good with these skills with the dog distractions. We did increase the amount of rewards that were dispensed to make sure he was focused on the trainer and not the dogs. He would sometimes break positions but he quickly corrected himself when the trainer said “ah ah”. He just needs some practice on this skill but he showed really good knowledge already! Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For his last session today we worked on his recalls on the long line outside. To do this we threw a treat to distract him and then once he found it we would call his name, say “come” and then move back a little and he would run straight up to the trainer. He did so well with this, he got quite distracted when he saw a bird and it took a little bit more convincing to get him to recall. He just needs practice on this skill but he is really engaged with he trainer for the most part. Just keep practicing on the long line in different environments with different distractions! Focus: Distraction B
