Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For Roxy’s first session we worked on her recall. This is a good skill for Roxy as it allows you to have her come back to you when off leash. We started off by conditions the word ‘come’ to Roxy being right infront of us. She quickly picked this up and we were able to start mini recalls. As we were outside it was a distracting environment however she still did so well! We would stand only a couple steps away and then ask for ‘come’. As soon as Roxy started to walk forward we marked ‘yes’, and then gave her the treats when she was in-front of us. As she continued to progress we started to wait until Roxy would get distracted and look away before asking her to ‘come’. She did really well with this a turned away from the distraction almost every time. The next step for Roxy will be to continue progressing the distance and distractions she is recalled in. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Play Comment: For Roxy’s second session we worked on her play skill. This is a really good skill for building engagement. As we were again outside this was a distracting environment so we wanted to show Roxy that we are more fun than the environment. Roxy did really well in this session and loves the tug-toy. The next step for Roxy will be to continue using play to build engagement in distracting environments but also new environments to build confidence. Focus: Confidence X
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Roxy’s last session we worked on her loose lead skill. This is a good skill as it allows you to walk Roxy without her pulling or zigzagging. She absolutely smashed this session and did so well considering the distractions were high. She maintained really good eye contact majority of the time and turned about 90% the trainer did. There were a few times Roxy got distracted and would continue walking straight even if the trainer turned and in these instances we used ‘uh uh’. The next step for Roxy will be to continue working on her loose lead around high distractions, trying to decrease the reward frequency. Focus: Distraction B+
