Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Roxy’s first session today we decided to go straight to the pony club next door to work on her drop skill. As soon as we left the kennels she was super excited but was still able to come back to the trainer, sit and then continue walking. Once we got next door Roxy practiced some drop duration, she is getting really good with her drop skill, we could ask for the drop (with a hand and verbal cue) then walk around her slowly before releasing her. She did break position to try and chase some birds so it will be good to practice in new environments to help her work through those distractions. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: Roxy’s second session today focused on a new skill, middles! This skill get Roxy to sit between the trainers legs looking up at them. To teach it we lure her through our legs a couple times just getting her used to going through our legs. After this we lure her through and then move the treat upwards, this encourages her to sit down and look up (see picture attached on final position). Roxy picked this up really quick, the next step for this is just lots of repetition and increasing the duration that she remains between our legs. It won’t take long for her to pick this skill up, so we should be able to label it as “middles” soon! Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her last session today Roxy worked on her loose lead and sit skills. Roxy was pretty tired by this session so she would get distracted easily, we started inside and progressed outside throughout the session. Every now and then we would ask her to sit and we would test her with some mild distractions like the trainer making silly noises or jumping around her. She did pretty well with this but towards the end of the session she was losing concentration so we just finished with loose lead to bring her focus back and finished on a good note. Focus: Distraction B
