Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: For Lexi’s first session today she was extremely nervous with the trainer. The trainer spent the session getting to know her and letting Lexi know that she is safe in this new environment. By throwing her treats and sitting in a corner of the run this allowed her to build trust and eventually she came and sat next to the trainer. We didn’t want to push her too far to hard so we left the first session on a positive note and left her in the kennel. Focus: Conditioning C+
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: Her second session was much the same as the first but she was already a lot more comfortable with the trainer and came straight up to them. We worked on getting her conditioned to the slip lead, this means any time she looked at it she received a treat. She was quite skittish when the lead was moved closer to her so getting her to associate it with something positive is critical. Since she was already wearing a collar we decided for the next session to just use a lead to clip onto it, but working on her confidence with the slip lead will be a great thing for her confidence. Focus: Conditioning B
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: Her last session we were able to clip the lead onto her collar and take her outside to explore the new environment. She was still quite nervous and pulled a fair bit on the lead but since it’s her first day we weren’t too worried on trying to teach loose lead while she was getting used to everything. Getting her used to the trainers and the environment will really help her relax and settle into the routine. This is really important as she needs to feel at ease to learn new things during training! Despite how nervous she was, she cuddled up to the trainer and was very keen on treats and pats! Training for her is going to work wonders for her confidence! Focus: Conditioning B
