Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Kelsey’s first session was loose lead walking. Again she was quite excited and this meant she did pull to start with but the trainer changed direction frequently and Kelsey did settle. The trainer took her to an area where a couple of other dogs were nearby. Kelsey was distracted by the dogs and had trouble engaging with the trainer. The trainer used more treats and changed directions and as the session progressed Kelsey did become more engaged. During this session Kelsey was also exposed to a ride on mower with trainer passing close by. During this time the trainer worked to put Kelsey in a drop. While this occurred another dog was walked nearby. Kelsey struggled to hold and a drop during this. For the next time the trainer would like to add more distractions to work on drops. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Ring a Bell Comment: Next up for Kelsey was a more of a fun session. Ring the bell. Kelsey started by trying to pick up the bell in her mouth straight away. The trainer didn’t reward this behaviour, but instead rewarded for touching it with her nose. As Kelsey started to do this consistently the trainer then withheld the treats until Kelsey started to show a different behaviour. Namely touching the bell with her foot. Kelsey started to do this. Next goal will be consistently tapping the bell with her foot to get it to ring. Great fun session Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Last session for Kelsey was place. The trainer took the place bed into the kennels. Kelsey was great ignoring the other dogs but was keen to follow the trainer and moved from place. Again increasing treats meant Kelsey was able to hold place better. Toward the end of the session the trainer took Kelsey into one of the big yards near a loud dog to work further on her drops. Kelsey was a little distracted at first but did much better with her drops. Next time the trainer will work to increase the duration that Kelsey can hold her drops. Focus: Distraction C+
