Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Myas first session we worked on her drop duration in the cattery. This is a useful skill as it puts Mya in a controlled position while she is receiving exposure to cats. Mya really struggled to hold her duration at the beginning of her session as she was breaking her drop after 3 seconds. When she broke her drop she was told ‘uh uh’ and put back into her drop. To increase her duration she was frequently rewarded when she was in her drop. Towards the end of the session Mya was able to remain in her drop for a couple of minutes while next to the cat condo and she had great engagement with the trainer! The next step for Mya will be to continue trying to increase her duration around new distractions. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Myas second session we worked on her drops again however with RLGL. Mya went through periods where she did really well and then other periods where she wouldn’t drop. The times Mya didn’t drop she was told ‘uh uh’ and put into her drop. When Mya did drop she was released straight away and started playing with the tug toy again. The next step for Mya will be to continue working on her RLGL drops with low distractions. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For Myas last session we worked on her recall. This is important to be able to call back Mya when she is walking away. To do this the trainer would start to make noise, jingle the lead and run away from her. When Mya would follow she would be expected to sit infront of the trainer and was then rewarded and released. If Mya didn’t sit then the trainer would try again, this is important so Mya doesn’t come up to the trainer and then run straight off. The next step for Mya will be to continue working on her Recalls in low distractions. Focus: Repetition C+
