Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Loki’s first session today we had him working on his drops inside the classroom to help get him focused and ready for the day of training. He was very distracted by all the smells on the classroom floor so we had to work hard to get his attention. Once he was in a drop though, it was difficult to find something that would actually distract him. We threw tennis balls, squeaky toys and even pushed a lawn mower next to him and he wasn’t phased. This is really good as it means he will be great outside, it’s just getting his focus first which is the hard part. Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Loki’s second session today we had him working on his loose lead skill inside. He wasn’t very engaged at the start but would easily follow the lead and didn’t pull at all. By the end of practicing inside he did much better and would occasionally glance up at the trainer. We moved outside to test his skill but we didn’t get very far today. He was pulling every which way, even when the trainer tried to change directions he would just sit down. So we decided to go back inside and practice there. To help work on this some fun games or tricks can be practiced and then gradually working your way outside can be achieved. Focus: Repetition B
