Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Sampson’s first session today we worked on his loose lead walking in the kennels with his harness on. This is a very distracting environment as dogs are barking, running up and down the fences etc. Sampson handled this like a pro, he couldn’t careless about the other dogs and showed the trainer amazing engagement. Even though it’s not strictly wedding prep, the skills translate over to the scenario. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Sampson’s second session today we worked on his sits with loose lead. Every time the trainer stopped we wanted Sampson to automatically sit. This is a good skill for wedding prep because it makes it easy to keep him in one spot. To start with we would stop, ask for a sit, reward and then release. He picked this up really quickly and soon he would just automatically sit when the trainer stopped and then move off with the trainer. Keep working on this one but he did so well in all sorts of environments. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his last session we continued with the loose lead walking and automatic sitting. We were able to do this all around the kennel runs, around a group of people talking and through the cattery. Although not an exact replica of a wedding situation he is learning that stop means sit. He did so well with this, he picked it up really quickly. He is going to be a star at the wedding, hope everything goes well! We look forward to seeing pictures of him being a good boy! Focus: Distraction A
