Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Squid’s first session was loose lead. It did take a little bit for Squid to settle down and the he was walking well in a small area. As the trainer moved up the driveway he became excited again as he saw people as well as the horse. It took a little to get Squid working well again. Changing directions every time he pulled and being consistent with this meant he settled quite quickly. Well done Squid. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Squid’s next session was place and around. Around is a handy skill to have and fun to have your dog to go around things. Squid did struggle at first, to be lured around the cone. But he decided he wanted to take treats, so that helped! By the end of the session he had progressed and was no longer pulling in a different directions!! A lot of work still to do on this one but well done Squid for working hard. Focus: Repetition C
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Final session for Squid was drops. He is great getting in position but doesn’t like to hold it, especially when the trainer is trying to get a photo! The trainer worked with Squid to help him stay in position longer and he progressed well! He still needs to hold position longer but he is improving. The trainer also started luring Squid into spins. These are great to get a dog’s focus back on the handler. Squid did a good job of these although he did start to get a bit excited and silly, so the trainer went back to drops to help settle him back down. Next time it would be good to see Squid not get as excited and lose focus. Focus: Duration C+
