Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Play Comment: This session focused on giving her an outlet. We started to introduce spring pole. This has a tug tied up, with a strong elastic and a release button. Sarai was straight into it, biting and pulling on the tug. After a little bit we released it, letting her play with the toy, meanwhile another trainer was clipping another one on. As she starts to understand the game we can introduce an “out” command and build some impulse control around it. Right now we are just building the foundations, getting her used to the game! She loves it! Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: This session focused on her drop and place skill in the classroom. Sarai did all of this with another dog present (fairly low energy). She did bark at them once but was easily redirected back into her drop with “uh uh” and a bit of a reminder with leash guidance/foot brake. Sarai showed the trainer some great focus this session, likely because she was able to get some of that energy out the session prior! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Play Comment: We had some fun this session with the flirt pole! Although the flirt pole has definitely seen better days…Sarai loved it! We were able to work on her “out” by stepping on the leather and saying it clearly with a stern voice. Once she let go we asked her to drop for a few seconds while the trainer reset then asked her to “get it”. She really loves the play, it’s a great outlet for her! We also finished up with some drops and “middles”. Having the classroom to ourselves meant we could have some off leash fun! Focus: Distraction B+

We recommend your next step should be…
