Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: The trainer started the day with some send to place from a distance and as the classroom for busier they changed the focus to duration and conditioning m when noisely or excitable dogs entered the classroom she would mark with 'yes' and reward. Eventually Kipi started looking at dogs and people and then at the trainer (expecting a reward). This was a great development as it shows that Kipi made the connection of looking at people and dogs with a positive (reward). Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: The trainer worked outside for this session and mainly focused on Kipis loose lead and engagement within the carpark. He walked beautifully on lead with low distractions. When a male staff member and gardener arrived the trainer used this as an opportunity to redirect his focus and condition unfamiliar and new people. The trainer did this at a distance with drops and loose lead. Kipi was aware of their presence but had amazing focus and ignored the men as he walked past with the trainer. The gardener even moved his mower (turned off) nearby and Kipi continued with his walk. The trainer was so proud of Kipi! Keep up the great work! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: The focus of this session was desensitisation with handling. Kipi really struggled with muzzle training. He is good with putting his head in and holding duration however as soon as the trainers go to connect the muzzle he will growl and occasionally snap. The focus of this session was conditioning touch around his neck and head. This included collar grabs, neck pinch (what vets do for vaccinations) as well as ear checks. Starting softly the trainer gradually increased the hold of each skill to ensure Kipi experienced a positive experience with each hold. The trainer was able to do full holds with Kipi and he was rewarded heavily. When returning Kipi to the kennels and putting his collar on the trainer noticed that he only growled when he heard the click of his collar. Does he do this at home? The trainer would like you to start conditioning putting the collar on and off Kipi. Focus: Conditioning B+
