Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session we worked on loose lead with drops outside with another dog nearby. Sampson was a little distracted for the first minute but then gave good engagement. He largely ignored the other dog and was even very well behaved when the ride on mower came past. His drops were quite good though at the start he would break as soon as the trainer went to walk on while he remained in drop but after a few reps he stayed in drop really well. Work on emergency drops (telling him to drop while you continue walking) as he was a little slow with these at the start. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his second session we worked on red light/green light drops. Sampson did a great job with this! He only didn't go into a drop right away once but every other time he let go of the toy and went right into drop. In his breaks between play sessions we worked on the chin rest skill to get him used to being touched around his mouth without mouthing or biting. He did really well with this though often needed a lure to keep his chin still in the trainer's hand. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For his last session we worked on his recall on the grass out the front. Sampson was a little distracted so we spent a few minutes starting off with loose lead to increase his engagement. Once he had settled we worked on having him in drop and then recalling. His first few recalls were fantastic - he came right away and finished in a sit or drop. After a few he started to get a little overexcited and was chewing at the grass and started jumping/mouthing. Each time he did the trainer put him straight into a drop to calm down and then worked on luring him out back into loose lead. Work on not letting him get too overexcited and keep him in controlled positions. Focus: Distraction B
