Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his first session we worked on drops on the classroom around other dogs. Teddy is great with his duration and distraction levels while in drop but still struggles with following a hand signal into drop (will often sit instead). So the focus of today was lots of repetition of going into and out of drop. Initially he wasn't great at it but as the session progressed he became much better at listening to the trainer and seemed to do better when dropping at the side of the trainer. Keep practising going into and out of drops at home to help make it clearer for him and speed up his skill. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For his second session we worked on sending Teddy to place from a distance. At the start of the session he would only go to place from a short distance away but we were able to move it up to a metre away and then a little further! This was great progress for Teddy - at home practice slowly increasing the distance you can send him to place from. Focus: Distance B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his last session we took Teddy out into the carpark to work on his loose lead around another dog. Initially he was very distracted and pulled towards the other dog a bit but after a few minutes he started focusing more on the trainer though he would still occasionally get distracted. Continue working on his loose lead in different environments with a focus on his engagement. Focus: Distraction C+
