|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Sampson’s first session we worked on his place skill. Sampson was doing really well being sent to place, so we increased his distractions by adding a plate of food next to the bed. To begin with Sampson was going for the food instead of going to place. After a few uses of ‘Uh Uh’ and being put onto place he picked up to leave the food. The next step for Sampson will to be continuing to use food as a distraction when sent to place.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Sampson’s second session we worked on Loose lead walking. To begin with we worked in a low distraction environment in the cattery. As he did so well in the classroom we moved to outside after a few minutes. He still did well outside however he did get distracted more. Walking in one direction was fine however walking in the opposite Sampson struggled with as we were walking towards more distractions instead of walking away from them. To begin with he wasn’t turning when the trainer was. To help reduce this the trainer started to turn earlier and when he wasn’t turning used a lure. This refocused Sampson’s attention onto the trainer. Sampson’s next step will be to continue his loose lead walking outside.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: For Sampson’s last session we worked on his recall. To begin with we did an engagement game in the classroom. This involved throwing a treat every time he made eye contact with the trainer. As he understood this pretty fast, we moved onto the trainer running away from him. When he would chase the trainer and sit in front of her he would be rewarded. While Sampson did well at this he was often distracted and would run off before he got to the trainer. The next step for Sampson will be to continue the basics of recall in a low distraction environment.||Focus: Foundation||C|
