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

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Rupert needed a while to observe his environment before he fully settled for the first session. He is a sensitive boy so we allowed him to explore as long as he was not pulling on lead. Once he was more settled he started taking treats and we were able to work on his lead reactivity when walking past dogs. To begin with we started at a larger distance and gradually got closer and closer. Rupert was encouraged to continue walking and the trainer was proud that he displayed no reactivity towards the other dogs. Focus: Confidence B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Rupert has a solid down skill but lacks duration so this was the main goal for the session. There were dog distractions which he struggled to remain focused with however he did not display reactivity as we were quick to mark them as a positive and redirect his attention. As the session progress he was improving with his duration and we were able to add distance and some silly movements from the trainer. Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: Rupert was very distracted during this session but has improved with the recall since last time. The trainer was able to recall him away from another dog however this is not developed enough as he requires high energy motivation to do so. When too many distractions are present he ignores the trainer so she used the reel in method (guide them back with the lead). After a few repetitions he was consistently returning when called which is a great improvement for him. Focus: Distraction B
