Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: To help with her hyper activity the trainer worked on Pippa’s loose lead skills along with some basic obedience skills. If we can get these skills nice and strong it will help Pippa make better decisions when things get a little much for her. She was like a rocket coming out of accomodation today and full of energy. However it didn’t take her long to start focusing on the trainer. She is very good motivated so it didn’t take much with the treats to get her attention however the trainer found that once they got her attention she held it great even without constant rewards which is amazing! She is able to get into her sits and drops as well but might need a little more work on building the duration. Focus: Obedience B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For the second session the trainer worked on another skill that is used to better help develop better behaviours when the dog gets over stimulated as training out the behaviour is much harder than teaching techniques to mitigate the issue. For this session the focus was on sending Pippa to place from large distances in order to have a skill that when she is getting to much we can send her to a secure position that we know she isn’t going to leave. Along with the distance she was also tested on her duration on place as well and while pretty good she Focus: Distance C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For her last session today the trainer focused on her drop skill. Like the previous sessions the focus was around getting Pippa to get into the position even when out on a walk and confronted with distractions. To help progress the skill the trainer asked Pippa for a drop in quick succession of each other without giving her a reward. The quick repetition of the commands helps retain the verbal command in Pippa’s head and helps with the speed she complied with the command. She smashed this last session being able to go up and down in quick succession. She still needs some focus on her duration while in a drop but is doing really well! Focus: Duration C+
