Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Luna revisited her "place" skill during the lesson, focusing on understanding the boundaries of the skill. Initially, she ignored the trainer, showing reluctance to hop on the bed and immediately hopping off as soon as she did. However, after repeating the exercise, she began to stay on the bed, waiting for her release. We gradually introduced more distance, walking away from her while she remained on the bed. Despite releasing herself a few times initially, Luna quickly learned that she needed to stay on the bed regardless of the distance we moved away from her. Focus: Back to Basics C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In this lesson, Luna also worked on her loose leash walking. We started outside, but the smells were too much of a distraction, so we moved back inside for a refresher. Luna was uncomfortable taking treats directly from our hand at this stage, so we chucked them on the ground in front of her each time we gave her the "yes" marker. Luna began the lesson by pulling ahead a bit, but after some repetition, we managed to get her to follow the trainer's movements. She became more comfortable over time, eventually taking food directly from our hand. We concluded the lesson with Luna losing focus occasionally, which led to pulling, although she spent most of her time focused on the trainer. Focus: Back to Basics B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Luna ended the day with some confidence-building exercises and exposure through trick training. We introduced her to going through a hoop that was set up a few centimeters off the ground, using a treat and slight lead guidance to encourage her. Initially, Luna was unsure about the setup, preferring to go around the side of the hoop to reach us. With repeated practice, focusing on encouraging her to go through as much as possible and heavily rewarding her success, she grew more confident. Eventually, Luna began going through the hoop on her own, following the treat. Focus: Foundation C+
