Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: First up for Miss Piper was drops. The trainer started near the office and at first Piper was a bit slack about getting into position. So the trainer did a member of quick repetitions and used the Uhuh word a few times to help Piper remember that she needed to focus! The trainer then took Piper into the cattery. Piper was actually scared of the cat that was in there and tried to hide between the trainers legs. The trainer worked on getting Piper into a drop and conditioning her to the cat. As the session progressed and a number of treats later Piper was starting to focus on the job she needed to do rather than the cat. She still wasn’t keen to get close to the cat but it was a great start! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Next up was a loose lead walk with the other trainer and Bailey. At first Piper was so excited but by the time she’d gone from the classroom to the top carpark Piper had settled better. Both trainers walked next to the other in a small area and changed directions frequently. Piper engaged with the trainer really well! The trainers then decides to go further up the track. Piper wasn’t keen to let Bailey go in front and did start to pull. The trainer turned and went in the other direction. Piper soon worked out that she wasn’t getting any where when she’s pulled. It was a great session with the girls and Piper did a great job. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: Recalls were the focus of the last session. The trainer yard has a bit of livestock poo in it and is always full of good smells. Because of this Piper needed a tug on the leash to get her attention Initially to recall. However, after a little bit Piper was recalling with no leash pressure! She did a great job. The trainer used high pitch voice and treats. As Piper turned the trainer ran backwards to encourage Piper forward. Towards the end of the session Piper was a little less keen but overall it was a great session. Focus: Distraction B
