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

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Roxy was very excited to start training but took a while to settle and stop jumping before the trainer was able to get her out. As soon as the trainer said áh ah' she stopped jumping and sat which was really good of her. At this time the trainer took advantage of the facility being opened and focused on her walking past people and dogs without her jumping. This was tricky as she had little engagement so it was difficult to redirect the behaviour. To assist with this we played the food engagement game in the distracting environments to redirect her focus which helped. Focus: Manners C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Roxy's second session mainly focused on building impulse control. This was done by playing around with her, revving her up and then being commanded into a drop. This was also done in different areas around the facility where she struggled to emgage with the trainer. Focus: Manners B
Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building) Comment: Today we had a special obstacle course set up for the doggos! It required them to go over different objects such as pods, tiles, bottles, bubble wrap, hurdles and under hanging curtains. Roxy required a fair bit of luring to go through the course but after she made it through the second time she was zooming through from there! It is great to encourage confidence with items, sounds or stimuli they are unsure of to further build their confidence. Focus: Confidence B+
