Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: Mav began his day with his ‘recall’ skill outside on a short line. Mav did extremely well at the beginning of his session, but as time went on, his nose got the better of him. While the trainer could still eventually get his attention, Mav would not be 100% engaged and often walk around the trainer then sit, facing a different way. We started on a short line because we want Mav to come when called, shorter line means a shorter distance for him to return. He came quicker when the trainer used more excitement in their voice, you always want to be the MOST exciting thing for your doggo so their attention remains on you. Keep up practicing at home!! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: Mav practiced his ‘recall’ skill again outside, this time with a medium line. He did much better than his first session! He was way more engaged with the trainer, which is exactly what we want! Yes, there were still the odd times he would come a little slower than liked, but practice makes perfect!! Reward him heavily when he comes quick, and only a single reward if he comes slower. If he comes too slow for your liking, use his non-reward marker “ah ah” and try again. He will pick it up soon. Amazing work Mav! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: To finish up, Mav then worked on his ‘recall’ skill outside again, but on a long line! Mav did really, really well! The first 2 sessions really brought out something in him and he had the most engagement with the trainer! He came exactly when called and did not fuss about!! If you are struggling with this at home, have him in a controlled position first (sit or drop), walk away and then ask for him to come. As he started in a controlled position his focus will already be on you. So proud of you Mav! Focus: Repetition A+
