Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Desensitisation Comment: Oli’s first session was drops near the road. He was very distracted even without traffic and his drops were slow and he was getting up straight away. The trainer did a number of repetitions to help Oli get quicker with his drop. This helped and the trainer moved onto the duration. Oli was great around the traffic and although he watched the traffic, as the session progressed, he worked well to hold position. At home make sure you have good treats, and around traffic, give Oli a job to do like drop or spin. Focus: Desensitisation B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Next up was emergency drops. The trainer started in the classroom and Oli was focused and dropping well. The trainer was able to keep taking a couple of steps while Oli stayed in the drop position. As Oli was doing quite well the trainer took him outside to spend the remainder of the lesson practicing standard drops. Again Oli was distracted and struggled to hold his drops outside. When at home practice inside adding in distractions. As Oli gets better with this work slowly up to practicing in the front yard. Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: Last up for Oli was recalls. The trainer started in the classroom and Oli did a fantastic job. The trainer didn’t need to tug on the lead in the classroom and Oli came every time. Venturing outside to head to the top carpark, Oli started barking at a nearby dog. Using the Uhuh work the trainer was able to get Oli’s focus back really quickly! Using treats and the yes marker Oli was then able to walk passed this dog without reacting. At the top carpark Oli’s recalls continued to go well, although a couple of times he needed the tug on the lead. When practicing this use high value treats. Oli is very food motivated and this certainly helps his recall. Focus: Repetition B
