Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Ollie’s first session today we worked on his loose lead walking outside with distractions. It was a good opportunity because we had lots of customers coming and going from the carpark so there were plenty of people and dog distractions. He seemed to struggle the most with dog distractions so we worked on keeping his focus on us while in a drop position. This allows him to watch everything but is in a controlled position and engaging with the trainer. Other than that he is doing really well with his loose lead, he would check in frequently with the trainer! Keep working on those distractions! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: His second session today was all about his emergency drops in the classroom. We started out with no distractions and focused on getting him used to dropping even while the trainer keeps moving. He did really well with this but struggled when another dog entered the room. This meant we had to slow down our movements and be very clear with the hand signal and verbal cue. By the end of the session he was doing much better and we could start to increased speed again. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Play Comment: For his last session today Ollie worked on his impulse control through RLGL drops. We used a tennis ball as he somehow managed to find one as we left the classroom. We worked outside because he did so well in his previous sessions and wanted to test him. We would ask Ollie for a drop, throw the tennis ball and release him. Once he got the ball we would let him play with it for a bit, we would then ask for the drop and exchange the ball for a treat. He did SO well with this, he was listening even while playing with the ball. He did get quite tired by the end and his ears seemed to turn off, when this happened we dialled it back and just worked on his drop durations. He did really well today, you should be proud. Focus: Distraction B+
