Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her first session we took Lady out onto the grass to work on her loose lead and recall. She didn't have great engagement to start off with but settled after a few laps. Her recalls were quite good at the start but she did lose interest in them as the session progressed and she became more distracted by cars coming in and out of the driveway. She was also a little slow in some of them and more dawdled back to the trainer. Keep practising recalls on a long line in different environments to help with her distraction levels. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For her second session we started work on her leg weave trick as part of her intermediate trick title. Lady took a bit to be engaged again but seemed to really enjoy the challenge of something different. She happily followed thrown treats through the trainer's legs and as the session progressed we were able to move to not needing a food lure and doing consecutive leg weaves which is great progress! Lady has a great number of tricks under her belt and we should be able to progress to her trick title application soon. Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For her last session we worked on Lady's drops with the trainer doing different things (standing up high, skateboarding, running past). This helps to proof the drops so that no matter what the trainer is doing Lady knows that drop means drop. Lady did struggle a little at the start with this and it took a few attempts in each position for her to drop right away when asked. This is something that can be practiced at home as well - try to get her to drop with you in different positions to help with strengthening this skill. Focus: Distraction B

We recommend your next step should be…
