Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In Millies first session we focused on “place” to help her settle within the stimulating environment. We had other dogs in training as well so that was a difficult distraction for her. We started with the basics of sending to and from place and gradually built duration and engagement. She was encouraged to remain until using the release word ‘okay’. She did well considering it was her first session. In her next session I would like to work on duration and focus. Training this at home would be a great way to get her to calm within a stimulating environment. This skill can be trained at home whilst watching tv on lead. During ad breaks release her and reward her with cuddles and pats. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: Millies second session we focused on crate training because she was hesitant to enter but settled quickly when in the crate. This session involved encouraging her in and out with rewards to make a more positive association for her. If you don’t have a crate at home I would 100% recommend them because it is a great way for them to relax, socialise and develop a good understanding of being settled within a distracting environment. Focus: Repetition D
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Millies last session we trained loose lead with distractions. The distractions were other dogs in training and other people within the classroom. Our main goal was to increase engagement with the trainer and reduce pulling. At first Millie was distracted which is normal, but getting her attention away from the distractions was showing improvement slowly. In her next session I would like to work on this more and get her attention straight away even with all the distractions in the room. Training this at home will help when taking her on a walk. How to train this is easy hold one lead in one hand and treats in the other, if she goes to pull walk the other way and keep doing that until she stops pulling, when she looks at you reward her with the word “yes” and with treats. Focus: Repetition B+

We recommend your next step should be…
