Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: The first session was focused on further developing Kong’s skill ‘drop’ under high distractions and in a new environment (in the cattery). For the first five repetitions Kong was distracted and struggled to go into drop. With some guidance he quickly began to drop and did not break until released with ‘break’. Once engaged Kong performed very well! The trainer was very impressed with Kong during this session and how far he has progressed. Continuing to practise drops at home in a range of different areas around your house will help his progress continue to grow. Focus: Distraction C-
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: The focus of this session was further developing Kong’s skill ‘place’, utilising ‘send to place’. Kong performs very well with this place, he settles quickly and has great duration. The trainer challenged Kong with sending to place working on distance. Kong performs well with sending to place from short distances (one step away from the bed), he can struggle when this distance becomes bigger. However, with some guidance he quickly began going to place despite how far away the trainer was standing, Kong successfully went to place while his trainer was 3 meters away from the bed. Sending to place is a great skill to practise at home. Focus: Distance C-
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: The third session was focused on further developing Kong’s skill loose lead within a high distracting environment (the cattery). Kong was initially distracted, however with some guidance he quickly began to engage with this trainer. Once engaged Kong performed very well! He ignored all distractions (cats and a bird) and remained in the correct position. Practising walking up and down a hallway of your home is a great way to work on this skill at home. Focus: Repetition B
