Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Baby Koda started her day with some ‘loose lead’ walking in the cattery, moving into the classroom. She did super well! She had the best engagement in the cattery and ignored a staff worker mopping the floors and was not phased by the pesky cats, which is awesome! Once in the classroom there were a few dogs out, ultimately she was quite distracted, so the trainer popped her onto place until she settled. Koda continued walking for the last couple minutes of the session and her engagement was okay, but not as good as in the cattery. Keep pushing her at home with these distractions! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Next up, Koda worked on her ‘drop’ skill, focusing on going into and out of it with distractions, but also working on duration once in it. She did awesome! There were a couple times she broke due to a dog getting a bit too close, but as the trainers read her critical distance, she was able to withstand breaking for the remainder of the session. Keep pushing this at home! The stronger her drop skill gets, the better her impulse control can be, especially for group classes! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: To finish off, Koda worked on her ‘place training’ through red light green light play. The trainer would get her razzed up and ask her to go to place, which she did wonderfully! She was not too interested in toys so the trainer just did physical play. Since she was smashing it, the trainer introduced her to her ‘touch’ skill, using a target stick. This is a great shaping skill for Koda to have and it can teach her to redirect unwanted behaviours as well! You can teach her to touch the palm of your hand too once she gets the hang of it. Let us know how you go! Focus: Distraction A
