Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: First session Moose worked on his drop skill. Moose at times still needs the help of a slight lure and hand signal to get into position so today we focused on fading that out to strengthen the verbal cue. Once in a drop Moose can hold his duration quite well around low/medium energy level distractions and is easily redirect back into position by saying uh uh if he breaks position. Keep working on fading out the lure at home and his duration. Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Moose’s second session we worked on his place skill. Moose is showing great progress with this! Today we started incorporating higher energy play and then sending Moose to place from a short distance. This helps test his obedience and teach him to have an off switch. This will also help to be able to use this skill to redirect unwanted behaviours at home. Moose needed a hand signal at times to help get onto the bed and occasionally got a bit too excited with higher energy play and struggled to focus but overall went to place when asked and held his duration until given his release word. Focus: Duration B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Moose’s final session we worked on his loose lead. Today we worked out in the carpark for some higher distractions as well as Kong and another trainer working nearby. Moose did well in this session, occasionally getting a bit distracted by the other trainer and Kong but we were able to regain his focus with direction change or asking for a sit. He walked nicely by the trainers side with minimal pulling. However he did get quite excited and pulling ahead when he saw one of the kennel staff members. Keep working on his leash skills in low distraction environments and working on his engagement around people. Focus: Distraction C+
