Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session we started off with loose lead outside. Leroy was a bit energetic and distracted so it took several minutes for him him slow down and start focusing on where the trainer wanted him to be. Once settled he was fairly good but did occasionally walk a bit ahead or into the trainer. Keep using markers and light lead pressure to direct him to walk besides you when practising this skill. He did quite well with his drops while walking and only didn't go straight into a drop once or twice. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his second session we worked on emergency drops. Leroy was quite good at his drops if the trainer was walking but would get distracted easily by other dogs or people in the room. We also pushed his emergency drops with light jogging and dropping when recalling. He did good with this though sometimes would only drop after hearing his "uh-uh" marker and refocusing. Practice his drops in different simulated situations and work on having him focus before asking for drops. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning Comment: For his last session we worked on muzzle conditioning. Muzzle can be a great safety skill and can keep other people and dogs away from Leroy while he is in training. It can also help you stay more relaxed knowing that he cannot follow through on any of his reactivity. Leroy did well with the muzzle - he is very comfortable putting his nose into it fully for treats so we worked on duration and having him put his nose in and then out before getting a treat. Focus: Repetition B+
