Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: Marcel was quite distracted to start off with today and kept watching a small chihuahua in the crate. We did a little bit of loose lead and engagement before moving into middles - initially he needed luring into position and would move out quickly but as the session progressed he got much better and was moving into position confidently and staying until released so we just worked on building a bit of duration for the skill today. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his second session we took Marcel over to the Pony Club oval to work on his loose lead around another trainer and dog. He did pull a few times at the start but did settle quickly into a really nice walk which included regular check ins and responding well to his "yes" marker. He only pulled once or twice to the other dog once settled but was brought back in quickly and went right back to his good walking. He does get a little FOMO when the other dog was walking ahead but we continued with the pulling around with "uh uh" each time he pulled ahead and he was better after that. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his last session we worked on Marcel's drops from stand (as he initially was doing them through sit when asked for drop). After a few lured drops from stand he was regularly going into the drop from stand which is good as this is much quicker and should be easier for him. His duration was fairly good but he did pop up early once or twice. Each time we marked "uh uh" and guided him back into the drop. He didn't have much issue going into drop in the classroom so the next step would be working on it outside or in more distracting environments to better prepare the skill for group classes. Focus: Repetition B

We recommend your next step should be…
