Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session we took Oscar into the cattery to work on his loose lead. Oscar was quite nervous in this environment and fearful towards the cats so we let him have a bit of a wander and sniff first to help with his confidence and conditioning. He did improve and was able to start walking (quickly) past the cats as he gained confidence. This would be a good environment for him to continue working in now that he is settled in the classroom and outside. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his second session we moved outside to work on his loose lead skill. He was much happier in this environment though this did mean he was a bit cheekier and wasn't as focused while on lead. His sits were quite good when walking though he struggled with drops. We did walk near the male handyman and Oscar was interested but didn't show any reactivity and was able to focus as the distance he was at. We can continue testing against male staff during his Dayschool days where possible. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: For his last session we continued on with the middles skill. Initially Oscar wasn't much interested in the lure but after switching to fritz he did engage a bit more and was able to follow it in between the legs several times. This is a great skill to continue on with at home as it can create a safe area for nervous dogs and is a good control position (like sit and drop). Focus on luring and then as he improves we can start fading out the lure. Focus: Repetition B
