Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: First session Moose worked on his place skill. He is picking this up well although he can still think he’s too big for the bed and step off once or twice while moving around to position himself. Today we worked on some play with short send to place, moose needs a clear hand signal paired with the verbal but is showing good progress. He held his duration well even while other trainers were eating their lunch nearby which he definitely wanted a nibble on. Keep working on this at home Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Moose’s second session we worked on his drop skill. The first couple of repetitions he needed a slight treat lure to help him into position but we were able to quickly fade that out and use a clear hand signal paired with the verbal instead. He can be a bit cheeky and try to give you his paw instead of drop when you do the hand signal but he quickly works out what is being asked of him. He held duration well around higher energy trainer movements. Keep working on his duration around distractions at home. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Moose’s final session we focused on his loose lead. Starting out in the carpark with not much else around to build on engagement before moving inside the kennels for some extra distractions. In the kennels there was lots of noise from the dogs boarding with us along with kennel staff members moving about. After some initial pulling which we redirected by changing the direction we were walking Moose settled and walked by the trainers side and starting to engage better. This is great progress for him, he can still get a bit excited and pull ahead when he sees some of his favourite staff members but is engaging back with his trainer quicker each time. Focus: Distraction B
