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

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: His first session we worked on building some engagement through loose lead. As he settled in and showed more focus we found some dog distractions. Robbie did really well, only looking at them occasionally but then back to the trainer immediately afterwards. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: This session focused on some nail board conditioning, shaping him into scratching it with his front feet. He was heavily distracted to begin with and was watching everything happening around him. We moved around a bit to help bring his focus back to us then went back to it. He showed some good understanding of this, scratching the board without much prompting. We withheld the reward until he scratched it a few times in a row to encourage more filing of his nails! Focus: Conditioning B
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: Lastly we had some fun with paws up on the wobble board. Robbie was quite hesitant to start with, only putting his two front feet on. Eventually we were able to lure him on all the way! He was quite wobbly so we kept working on it until he felt nice and stable with all four feet on the pod! All of his sessions today were around plenty of dog distractions, he didn’t show any negative behaviour - he would just glance in their direction but then refocus with his trainer. Focus: Confidence B

We recommend your next step should be…
