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

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: First session Ollie worked on some class conditioning and some play. He was initially quite hesitant coming into the classroom and took a bit of time to warm up to the trainer and relax. He initially wasn’t interested in toys either so we started to work on some place and then add some play in. Towards the end of the session he was more relaxed, playing and engaging with the trainer. We recommend more regular day schools to help him be more at ease in this environment with regular attendance so we can continue working on his skills further as he becomes more confident in the environment. Focus: Confidence X
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Ollie’s second session we worked on place. He was much more relaxed and at ease in this session. We worked on his duration as well as people conditioning. While he engaged with his trainer we had other staff members walk past and around the place bed to get him comfortable with their presence. Ollie wasn’t interested in treats during his sessions so his trainer made sure to incorporate lots of pats and play as his rewards. By the end of this session Ollie was also beginning to play with other trainers which is great to see him warming up to other staff members. He can still be quick to step off the bed before his release word but is showing good progress. This skill is something to keep working on at home as it is great to help with his people and even car conditioning/desensitisation. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Ollie’s final session we worked on his loose lead. We started outside the class on the pavement. In this environment Ollie was quite unsure and pulling heavily on lead away from the trainer and struggled with engagement. We moved inside the class to lessen the external distractions to focus on his leash skills. In the class he walked better, he did still pull ahead at times but as he was engaging more we were able to redirect this behaviour by walking the other way. At home you need to go back to basics working on his leash skills in the back/front yards and strengthening his engagement and manners before moving out into higher distraction environments. Focus: Foundation C
