Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her first session today the trainer worked on her loose lead walking. When they first walked into accomodation Lilli met the trainer with great enthusiasm and cuddled up to them trying to get between their legs! After this easy interaction the trainer took her out into the car park as we were closed and no cars were coming in. She was very distracted in this environment especially by other people walking around (she is very social!) so to help her focus the trainer decreased the distractions by taking her to the classroom where she can focus a bit better. She did much better in the classroom being able to keep a nice loose lead for most of the session, she needs to work on her engagement as this will help with keeping her close while on walks. Focus: Foundation C
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: I’m the next session the trainer worked on her place skill also known as “bed”. Her understanding of this skill is still very basic so the trainer just wanted to make sure she understands the verbal command before starting to push her duration, distance and distractions. Working in the classroom the trainer would at first just lure Lili onto the place bed and would reward her. When she was doing this successfully the trainer started to work in the verbal. It’s important we add the verbal at the right time or she may attach the word to another skill or position. As soon as all 4 paws were on the bed the trainer would marker “place”. Like before the trainer waited for 4/5 compliant and successful attempts before calling the activity a success. She did well and is showing some great signs of understanding her verbal command already. Focus: Foundation C
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: For her last session the trainer did some crate training with little Lilli! This was just getting her use to the crate and getting her to enter on her own. To help her with this the trainer tossed a bunch of treat into the crate. Slowly she moved into the crate on her own having the trainer entice her through from the other time. She did really well today! By the end of the session she was walking into the crate all on her own, the trainer wasn’t able to close her into the crate but she is now entering all on her own! Focus: Desensitisation A+
