Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning Comment: First session Miley worked on her muzzle conditioning and vet holds. We hope all goes well for her vet appointment! We started with duration of the muzzle itself before moving onto handling. Miley did well and didn’t seem too phased by her trainer touching her so they got another trainer to come do some vet holds also. She can be quick to whip her head around when touching her back end but as she has the muzzle she doesn’t snap and we regain her focus and keep up a constant flow of treats. Have the muzzle on at the vets ensuring it is on tight and have lots of high value food (fritz, cheese) and just keep up a constant flow of treats while using one hand to just hold around Mileys collar for extra guidance incase she does try to spin around towards the vet and ensure the vet takes it slow with her so she doesn’t get over threshold too quickly. Focus: Conditioning X
Skill learnt: Spin Comment: Mileys second session we started working on spin. Miley prefers to spin in an anti clockwise direction. She is still in the early stages requiring a lure to help her go around the full way but we have begun adding the verbal cue spin while luring. Miley had lots of fun doing this trick and was starting to get quite speedy in her spins! Good work! Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: Final session Miley worked on some middles. This is a fun little skill and can also be great for helping nervous dogs feel more secure (like at vet visits) miley is still needing a lure to come into position (prefers coming from behind trainer) while building up duration. She is beginning to feel more comfortable in the middles position which we love to see! Keep working on this at home focusing on her duration Focus: Duration C+
