Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Play Comment: This session focused on spring pole with Sarai! We hope to show you this at her next private appointment! As soon as Sarai saw the toy hanging she knew what to do! This week we started incorporating more obedience into the play. She was only allowed to “get it” after she went into a drop position. We made sure to have a long line attached in case we needed to grab her quickly (as there were dogs in covered crates). She only went to investigate the crates once but recovered really quick once redirected back into the play! Sarai is getting better at this and is starting to come to the trainers more after she “wins” the toy, wanting to continue the play with us! Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: We worked just outside the classroom for this session, this area provides minimal visual dog distractions but plenty of dog and people sounds (she knows the classroom is full of people and dogs but works just outside - critical distance). We practiced lots of repetitions of drop and middles. We practiced lots of different variations: middles with movement, middle with sit, middles with drop, middles from different angles. She seems to really enjoy this skill and it’s great to make it challenging so she doesn’t get tired of doing the same thing! Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: We worked in the same area as before. Practicing a mixture of place with duration, with distraction and creating a little bit of distance (length of lead). Sarai did bark at the handy man (John) as he walked past at a distance but she recovered well, refocusing quickly on her trainer. Keep pushing her place training, it’s a really important skill to make as bomb proof as possible. Focus: Distraction B

We recommend your next step should be…
