Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her first session today the trainer worked on Murphy’s loose lead walking. They worked outside with her today and she was able to walk around the entire property even the high distraction areas! Not only that but the trainer spent this session work on her sits and drops while out on a walk as well as trying to throw her off with quick random turns, she did awesome not breaking once’s and doing each and every sit and drop! The trainer was very impressed with this first session. Focus: Manners B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For the second session the trainer took her back outside to the grass area where they worked on her place skill. To test her distractions the trainer tethered her to the flower bed and asked for her to remain on the place bed. The trainer then attempted to break her off using fast movement (run at and around her) noises and general Tom foolery but none of this worked. She did break off once when the trainer got low to the ground so they worked on this today as a big part of the session just getting lower and lower to the ground near Murphy on place, by the end of the session she was sitting on the place bed calmly while the frisbee jumped up and down from being on the floor! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Desensitisation Comment: For her final session the trainer worked on some grooming conditioning! She has been doing so well with this recently so today the trainer introduced a new sound and object into the mix in the form of the clippers! While they did hold them close to Murphy initially while brushing her the trainer had the clippers on and right next to her causing the couch she was sitting on to vibrate! She was rewarded heavily since she didn’t try to run away and when she started investigating the clipper the trainer made sure to give her with some jack pot rewards to really solidify linking the positive behaviour to the clippers. She ended the day with a little bit of play before being returned to the pet resort accomodation to rest till the end of the day. Focus: Desensitisation B
