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

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: This session focused on some place training, practicing a mixture of quick repetitions and longer durations with trainer distraction. Pancakes showed some good understanding of her “yes” and “break” markers today. We recommend you keep pushing this skill, especially around Waffles as this was a challenge for him when he could hear him bark outside! Keep pushing those distractions and building duration, practicing the “art of doing nothing” which is great for cafe training! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: This session we practiced her loose lead walking outside! She showed the trainer some good engagement so we decided to really challenge her. We worked in the carpark where she could see some dogs running around during their Paddock and Play and she could also see Waffles! Pancakes was able to walk nicely with the trainer but did lack some engagement, meaning she didn’t check in/give eye contact as much as we would have liked. Considering the distractions that were present she did well, if she did pull in front we just stopped and went the other way but this didn’t happen often. The engagement can be built up the more you practice! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Lastly we practiced her drop durations in the classroom around Waffles. She was initially quite distracted when Waffles came in but we were able to redirect her focus quickly back to us! She showed great understanding of her drop skill and waited for her release word “break.” She did break position early a couple times when the trainer did some fast movements around her, she got excited and wanted to follow. When this did happen we said “uh uh” and guided her back into the drop. Keep working on her duration with distractions, building up the speed of your movements as she improves, this is also really important for cafe training as people are walking past or kids running past! Focus: Distraction B

We recommend your next step should be…
