Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session we worked on loose lead outside on the grass. Ralph did really well with this, though he wandered off a few times he was very responsive to his markers and settled down quickly. He did get distracted a few times by people and dogs so this would be a good level to work at with him in future sessions. We did also do a few short recalls while walking which he did quite well with. He did struggle to hold his sit outside though so working on sits and drops in distracting environments will help strengthen these skills. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his second session session we worked on Ralph's drop skill. He needed a bit of encouragement to go into his drops and broke a few times at the start. Once he was settled and focused we tested him with a variety of distractions including scooter, hula hoops, ukulele, tennis ball and the trainer stepping over him. He did really well with these distractions - keep building the distraction level at home and working on it in different environments. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For something fun for his last session we started on the basics of rollover. Ralph was good at following a treat onto his side but didn't quite get to the point of going on his back. Practicing this (or any other trick skills) at home can be a great way to break up the normal training routine and add some fun into his training days. Focus: Foundation C
