Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Murphy was amazing for her first session today. The trainer thought they would tackle two of the skills you asked to be worked on today and did some door manners training while out on her loose lead walk. To achieve this the trainer took her for a walk through the pet accomodation in the pet resort. At every door Murphy had to sit and wait and the trainer would open the doors very very slowly, not only this they have started going through the door before giving her release command to help her understand it’s not the trainer movements that indicates she can come through the door but rather the verbal release command. She smashed this today, there wasn’t a single door she tried to barge through and she walked amazingly on loose lead for the trainer. Focus: Manners B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For her second session the trainer didn’t waste any time utilising her energy from the first session and channeling it into her skills. They first started in the classroom just for a few minutes to build Murphy up to a strong point, sending her back and forth from place at different distances helped with this. After she was nice and set up for success the trainer took her out to the grass where the feathered her to the flower bed and tried to get her to break off place by acting all crazy and high energy. The trainer noticed that Murphy was able to handle it when the trainer was standing up and running around but as soon as they got onto the floor she wanted to play, this was the focus of this session, just slowly decreasing the distance the trainer was playing around on the floor, starting far away and moving closer as she remained on her bed. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: To finish off the day the trainer wanted to end on some fun and so they did some trick training with Murphy! They decided to do a few skills and it just focus on one so they did both spin and roll over! Murphy’s spin is doing well, she seems to be able to do it from just the hand gesture and verbal, however she has a little quirk where she tries to drop or sit as soon as she has done a single spin, so the trainer tried to get her to do multiple today, to help with this they kept her moving as this didn’t allow her the opportunity to drop as we kept her moving! Her roll over is also doing well, she doesn’t need a lure but does still need a hand gesture close to her face, the session today was based around pulling this hand gesture further and further away from her so we don’t have to lean over when giving the command, she did well increasing the distance a bit. Focus: Repetition C+
