Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Kelsey’s first session was loose lead walking. As she was quite excited at first to be leaving the kennel area the trainer ensured Kelsey had proper gate and door manners first. With that sorted Kelsey then started her walk pulling. The trainer started working in a small area first and changed directions frequently and Kelsey did settle a little better. However her engagement with the trainer was a little lacking so the trainer continued to change direction often. As the session progressed Kelsey did start to engage better which was fantastic to see. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Next up for Kelsey was place. Kelsey did have some knowledge of this skill but wanted to follow the trainer as soon as Kelsey was on the place bed. The trainer increased the frequency of the yes marker with treats. As Kelsey increased the duration in place the trainer was able to decrease the treats to a reasonable frequency. The trainer was able to then start adding in some more distraction like blowing bubbles. Kelsey was wary of the bubbles so did struggle with this. Again the trainer upped the frequency of treats to help Kelsey adjust to the distraction. She did a great job and by the end of the session she was able to hold place while the bubbles floated around her. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Focus for Kelsey’s last session was drops. This was a big struggle for Kelsey today. She does know her drops but was very slow or not wanting to drop at all. The trainer took it back to basics and lured her into position. As the session progressed her duration for holding a drop was better but she still struggled to get into position without a lure. Going forward this will be a focus over the coming sessions. Focus: Repetition C
