Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: First session Seiko worked on her loose lead and drops outside. This session became more of a conditioning and settling session as when first coming out of the kennels Seiko was very unengaged and not taking treats. She pulled quite a bit to start so we placed her in a drop with a foot break and gave her a pat as her reward for staying calm, there was a dog being trained in the distance which she did look at but showed no reactions too. We spent the end of session in a drop getting praise for being calm around the other dog. Focus: Distraction C
Skill learnt: Sit Comment: In Seikos second session we worked in the classroom on her people greetings. To do this we had her in a sit or drop and her trainer began to approach her. First with low energy and rewarding when she remained in the skill. As the session progressed the trainer picked up their energy levels. Seiko struggled a little with really high energy but is showing good progress. It’s important if she is greeting people at home she needs to be calm before they approach or pat her otherwise it is reinforcing her excitable behaviour. We finished the session working on some touch handling and a bit of a doggy massage to help promote her calmness with people touching her and also help with vet handling. She was a bit excited to start before quickly settling in and enjoying all the extra pats. Focus: Manners C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Final session we worked on Seikos loose lead again heading outside as this is the most challenging for her. This session we worked on the concrete just outside the classroom, there was a maintenance staff member with power tools nearby which was causing a lot of sound as a distraction. Seiko did well with minimal pulling, she did lack engagement and lose interest in treats halfway through the session but walked better than she did the first session. She was a bit unsure about sounds but quickly settled. Keep working on her leash skills at home focusing on the front yard and back yard until she can walk well by your side before adding further distractions. Focus: Distraction C+
