Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Sampson worked on his ‘drops’ with red light green light this morning. The point of this exercise is to get him razzed up, excited then asked for a controlled position. Sampson was such a good boy and did very well! There was the odd time he would get carried away and ignore the command to drop, so the trainer would use “ah ah”, gently take away the toy and place him in a drop, once settled, he was released and we tried again. Keep up the awesome work at home! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: Next up, Sampson worked on his ‘recall’ skill outside. Sampson was very excitable today and was very mouthy during this session. He would continually bite the lead and when the trainer would ask for a drop, he would mouth at their arms, hands and ankles. Although he did perform a couple recalls, due to his excitement level, he then did crate duration for the remainder of the session so he could calm down and refocus. Keep up the practice at home though! The trainer found him to be more engaged if he began in a drop. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: To finish the day, Sampson worked on his ‘loose lead’ walking in the cattery with those pesky cat distractions. He had beautiful engagement with the trainer, which is awesome. Right at the end of the session when he was getting his outside photo, he again got mouthy when he was told “ah ah” for breaking his position. The trainer then took out treats to refocus him, asking for a controlled position (drop) and then rewarded him, waited until he was settled and continued walking him back to the kennels. If he gets mouthy at home, pop him in a controlled position to redirect this unwanted behaviour. Good efforts today Sampson! Focus: Distraction A
