Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Pickles first session today was focused on his sits and drops but getting him to listen instead of predicting what’s we are going to ask. To do this we practiced both skills in quick intervals, always changing up which one was next. He did really well in the classroom but struggled to focus outside. Once we did have his attention though he did great! He only tried to predict which skill we were doing once, other than that he did well. Focus: Repetition A
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: His second session today focused on his loose lead walking and drops for wedding preparation. We set up some chairs on the grassed area around the fountain. He was quite distracted by all the smells in the grass and would pull off towards the house. To help with this we would practice his loose lead walking around the trees and reward for any engagement. He did get better towards the end and could drop/sit at the end of the aisle! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: For his last session today we decided to test his middles skill with some distance. To start with we worked in the classroom with a long line and tested him at all different lengths. We started with him in a control position (drop), prepared ourselves at the distance and then asked for “tweens.” He did so well in the classroom we progressed to outside on the cement. He did really well here we could even do it at the full length! The only thing he struggled with was when he was released he would get distracted smelling things. He did very well with the distance, now for more distractions! Focus: Distance B+
