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

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: For Mav’s first session we worked on his middles skill. This skill is good as it puts them into a controlled position. As Mav already knows his middles the trainer started to push him by getting him to walk in the middles position. This involved the trainer asking for middles and then luring him with a treat as she walked. Mav did really well and was able to walk a distance of 1 metre. Focus: Distance B+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For Mav’s second session we worked on his recalls. This is an important skill to be able to get Mav to come back around distractions. For this session we worked on the concrete. Mav did really well and majority of the time came to the trainer. As soon as Mav sat infront of the trainer he was told ‘yes’ and rewarded. The next step for Mav will be to start working around dog distractions. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Mav’s last session we worked on his loose lead outside. This is an important skill as it allows for walking without pulling. Mav started off with poor engagement and was walking ahead of the trainer so wouldn’t notice when she stopped or turned. To increase his engagement and make Mav aware that she was turning the trainer would take large and loud steps. After doing this Mav started to show better engagement and was following the trainer better. The next step for Mav will be to start progressing onto the grass area. Focus: Distraction B+
