Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Moe’s day began with some ‘loose lead’ walking outside. Moe was quite distracted today and therefore lacked some engagement. He still walked fairly good beside the trainer, but the first 5 minutes he just had his nose in the ground, sniffing everything. The trainer was able to regain his attention with his non-reward marker “ah ah”. The remainder of the session Moe’s engagement was okay, but was very good if on a path compared to grass. Keep working on this at home, try become more interesting than the grass; make noises, call his name some more until his focus is solely on you and reward him more frequently! Keep up the good work! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Next up, Moe worked on his ‘place’ skill, focusing on duration with distractions. The trainer began with rolling a tennis ball in front of the bed while he was on it, testing to see if he will break. If the ball got too close to him, he would hop off the bed, but the trainer would reposition him and try again. After a few rounds of this Moe got the idea and stayed put for the rest of his session. About half way through, quite a few dogs entered the room so the trainer stopped with the ball distractions and let him settle himself on place. He was interested in them at first, but after a few minutes he settled into a drop and started falling asleep! This was so good of Moe, the trainer rewarded him heavily to help him realise this is what we want. We want Moe to associate things like place and crate with relaxation. Amazing work!! Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: To finish off, Moe worked on his ‘recall’ skill outside, on a long line and with plenty of dog distractions. Although Moe came when called, he wouldn’t really come in a straight line, he would often curve and wander off a bit before hand. His future sessions will be focused on tidying up this skill and ensuring he comes quicker and in a straight line directly to us. Awesome work today Mr Moe! Focus: Distraction B+
