Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Teddy's first session the trainer wanted to work on loose lead as she has noticed that occasionally he can struggle with engagement and not follow the handler on turns. Teddy is very good with his engagement with controlled positions but it is time to step it up a notch and work on it with loose lead. He was very good during this session and towards the end responded better to the turns. When he tried to walk ahead a little the trainer would turn, this got his attention and she noticed he would 'check in' which was heavily rewarded. Repeating this process at home would be good for Teddy. Focus: Back to Basics C-
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: With little to no distractions the trainer focused on distance and distractions with his drops outside. Teddy can struggle to focus when entering the drops but has good duration. The trainer was able to walk to the end of the lead, around him, over him and lay down next to him without him breaking. At one point she pretended to fall over in front of Teddy but he didn't like that very much so he broke and went towards the trainer and sniffed her all over. Due to Teddy being rather jumpy, performing stuff like this can help desensitise him. Focus: Distance C-
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: During this session the trainer returned outside with Teddy where she put him in a drop and further worked on paw conditioning. She was able to ask Teddy for both paws and as the session progressed she held it for longer, felt in between his toes and then proceeded to get the other hand to approach (simulating trimming nails). She took this very slow with him as the did pull back occasionally but overall he did very well. Focus: Conditioning C-
