Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Tessa’s first session today was focused on her loose lead and drops around Zac. She was super excited when we first started but was still showing some engagement. We were able to redirect her focus back to the trainer when Zac came out and continue loose lead walking away from him. We even got Tessa to drop and have Zac do circles around us. Her engagement still isn’t 100% on the trainer but she definitely listens and is eager for treats! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Tessa’s second session focused on place training right next to Zac. We were able to send her and release her from place right next to Zac and she didn’t try to jump all over him. After a while of this we would release her and ask for a drop right next to Zac’s bed. Tessa had some awesome engagement throughout this session. We even tested her with food being dropped next to her while on place. Keep pushing the distractions for her, although she can have momentary lapses of focus it’s never hard to bring it back. Make sure to use lots of high value treats for high distracting environments. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Spin Comment: Tessa’s last session today was focused on her spin skill in the cattery. She loves her treats so this makes it easy to lure her around. We worked in the cattery for the purpose of distraction, we were near some cats and rabbits which were apparently very intriguing. After a while Tessa didn’t care about them and showed less and less interest. To teach spin we used the treat to lure her in a circle, for this we lured her around to her right, marked yes when she is 3/4 around them reward when she is facing us. This skill is good for engagement while walking along and simply just for fun. While walking along we can ask for a spin then keep walking, helps keep them focused on us and not their environment. Focus: Repetition B+
