Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Poppy spent majority of her day with Jess. As much as Poppy was thrilled to be with her, she still had to work hard to earn her treats and cuddles. For majority of the morning Poppy was in drop duration as Jess answered phones, assisted clients with drops off and cleaned the office. To begin with Poppy struggled with duration and would break when the phone rang, however she quickly understood what was required of her. On the odd occasion she would break when clients and staff entered the office however for majority of the time she remained in her drop! When the client or staff left, she was released and had a big play with Jess. It was interesting to see how Poppy responded to drop duration in a different environment. Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: At the end of the morning shift Poppy and Jess worked on her loose leas and sit (door manners) skill. Poppy was required to sit before every single door they went through, Jess would open the door and wait a few moments before releasing her. Poppy was a super star with this! Towards the end of the lesson we would approach a door and she would offer the sit without any command. Poppy's loose leas was also very good, this is possibly due to setting her up for success (ensuring she is responsive) before even leaving or entering the room. Focus: Repetition A
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: In the car park Poppy can be easily distracted so for her final session we worked on her recall. She did well with this but occasionally would ignore the trainer. As soon as the trainers energy increased she regained her focus again. We utilised play as well as rewards to reinforce the skill which she thoroughly enjoyed. Working on her recall and engagement when around stimulating people, dogs and environments would be great to further work on her engagement and recall. Focus: Distraction B
