Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Robbie was so excited to start training today! To help with his energy and to take advantage of the sunny weather we took Robbie outside to work on his loose lead. We started off in the carport and then moved to a grassy area. Robbie was a bit distracted at the start but as the session progressed he started engaging really well with the trainer. He did tend to walk a bit ahead but didn't pull at the end of the lead and listened well to his markers to return to the trainer. He was a little nervous when we returned to the classroom with another dog around and going into the crate. With some luring and pats he did start to settle though. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For his second session we worked on place outside with a hose as a distraction. Robbie was a bit scared of the hose at the beginning but allowed lots of cuddles and pats which helped him adjust and gain some confidence. When the hose was off he did sniff it a few times but is still a little wary when it is on. To help him get his confidence fully back we went into the classroom to finish up with some paws up. Robbie absolutely loved this, he was engaged with the trainer and kept going on the bucket on his own. We worked a little on a pivot around the bucket which he also did well with. After this confidence boost he was happily taking treats again and was able to ignore another dog in the classroom while doing paws up. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his last session we continued work on Robbie's roll-over skill. Robbie went onto his side several times with the lure but did struggle to do a full roll over. He did do a great job at not reacting with another dog in the room nor when a male staff member entered the room and walked near him. Unfortunately we were unable to get him to do a full rollover during the session but he certainly seemed to be having fun trying! Focus: Foundation C
