Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: When the trainer when to collect Millie from the kennel’s Millie started pulling straight away. Therefore the trainer started the session from that point. Millie was very distracted so the trainer continued training in the classroom where the distractions were less. The loose lead skill is so important to both owner and dog. It means that a walk can be an enjoyable experience and encourages engagement from Millie. Once in the classroom Millie settle a bit and the trainer worked on charging her yes marker before continuing with some loose lead walking. Next time the trainer would like to continue with Millie’s loose lead walking and introducing more distractions. This is also a skill that the owner can work on at home with Millie. Start in the driveway with few distractions and work up to the street and so on. Focus: Repetition C
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Millie’s second session was a focus on place. This is a perfect skill for her to use at home to remain calm and for when visitors come to the house. Great for impulse control. She didn’t hold place very well to start with and got off as soon as the trainer started to take a step away. However as the session progressed she did really well. The trainer then introduced a tennis ball and Millie did want to take off after the ball. But after a couple of times she stayed on place. The owners can practice this at home inside while watching TV or cooking. Slowly add more and more distractions. Next time the trainer would like to continue this skill with Mille adding in more distractions until she can hold place for a good period of time regardless of distractions. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Millie’s final session was a focus on drops. A perfect skill for her to learn from a young age and proof as she gets older. To be able to drop keeps her focus on you and can be used in emergencies when out walking. She did well with her drops but did break straight away as there was another dog nearby training. Once the trainer got her focus to stay in the position until the command break she did better. However she was easily distracted. Next time the trainer would like to work on Millie staying in position longer and not having her break position even for a fly! She did a great job though. Focus: Distraction C
