Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his first session today Robbie worked on his quiots skill. We tried using the fetch method but he wouldn’t go and get it or bring it to us. We worked on just getting him to target the ring with his mouth and then throwing the treat. This makes him move away and then come back to the ring. He didn’t pick the ring up at all but was definitely biting it. Keep working on this, as he bring the ring to you, have the pole near you. If he drops it near the pole reward him, if he doesn’t withhold the treat. This creates frustration and makes him try again. Start slowly, if he drops it a metre away reward but only then reward him if it’s the same or closer. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For his second session today we worked on his place and drop skills around dog distractions. Robbie did super well and didn’t try and pull towards any of them. We alternated between place and drop to keep him focused. He did very well with both skills and showed great engagament. While in a drop we would move around him and test him with different distractions. Keep working on his skills in safe environments with dogs around. A good place to try is outside a dog park (reasonable distance). Here you can get him to settle with lots of distractions. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Lastly Robbie worked on his loose lead walking outside. We were able to walk all around the property with people and dog distractions with no problems. There were 3 other dogs training outside at this time so it was a great chance to practice. He didn’t pull once and was also able to hold a drop position while dogs walked by. Keep working on his skills with different distractions, he is definitely ready for high distracting scenarios. Focus: Distraction B+
