Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Ollies first session was a focus on loose lead. The trainer did this outside near the traffic that was driving past. There were quite a few cars and trucks that made a lot of noise however, he continued to walk well on the lead and was more concerned about the smells on the ground. When Ollie did pull towards the smells the trainer changed direction to help keep the focus on her. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Drop was the focus for Ollie for the second session. The trainer started in the office because of the weather and Ollie did struggle a little with having the distraction of another person nearby. The trainer used the yes marker to help Ollie hold the drop position for longer. The trainer then moved outside and continued on drop whilst walking to the classroom. Once in the classroom there was dog distractions for Ollie and once again he struggled to hold position for a length of time. The goal for Ollie going forward will be for him to be able to hold position hold regardless of the distractions. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Ollie’s final session was a bit of trick training. The trainer started with trying to get Ollie to just put three paws on a step. This is to help him work towards being able to use the skateboard. Ollie was really excited about this skill and as such struggled to be calm enough to work out what he needed to do. Something the trainer will work towards in future sessions. The trainer, also worked on a new skill for Ollie called hanky pull. This entails Ollie pulling on a coloured hanky. He progressed well with this and it will be great to be able to continue on during his stay here. Focus: Repetition D
