Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: First session Pretzel worked on his drops outside. Today we focused on fading out lures and his duration in different environments. Being outside can be a bit more distracting but as the session progressed Pretzel began to going into the drop from the verbal cue and a slow, clear hand signal. He still needs a lure at times but is showing good progress. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Pretzels second session we worked on his place. His duration is improving well so today we worked on sending him to place from a short distance. He still needs a hand signal and can be slow going to the bed but is improving. He held his duration around low energy trainer movement. He can still break at times, when he does this we just redirect him back to the bed. Focus: Distance C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Final session Pretzel worked on his loose lead. Today we worked in the carpark around Maggie. Pretzel was quite distracted by Maggie to start with so we worked on engagement before walking past. As the session progressed so did Pretzels engagement and we were able to start adding mini recalls away from Maggie. Focus: Distraction C+
