Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session today Leroy worked on his loose lead outside with dog distractions. We practiced along the driveway where we knew people were going to walk past with dogs and utilised every opportunity we could. Leroy would look at the other dogs but once the trainer became more interesting he followed along. Leroy did well with his loose lead, he would check in frequently but wasn’t overly fussed on his treats. Keep working on his loose lead walking with different distractions in new environments! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his second session today Leroy worked on his drop durations with dog and people distractions. We worked on this outside where we knew other people were training. Leroy responded well to just a verbal cue and had great engagement while in position. We tested him with trainer distractions, skipping, jumping, stepping over him etc. We also worked in close proximity to another dog, he would look at this other dog but then back to the trainer. Each time he looked back to us we always rewarded him for making a good decision. Keep working on his drops he is doing so well! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: For Leroy’s last skill we worked on something fun, middles. This skill requires them to sit, stand or drop in between the trainers legs. To teach this we use a treat lure to guide him through the legs, once standing in between we mark yes, then move the treat up so they look at our face, reward then release! He did well with this skill and was going between the trainers legs successfully. You can chose which position he goes into once in between our legs but the normal one is just a sit and it’s easier for them to look up at us. Keep working on this one, it’s a great control position to have! Focus: Foundation C+
