Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Tessa was very energetic and keen to get to work today so the trainer spent the first part of this session just getting Tessa to settle, the idea is that while she really wants to get out and do work but she must settle and come out the way we want and not rush out the door. Once she was settled the trainer allowed her to leave and opened the door, this was done at every door way during this session helping her with the idea of waiting for her commands! The rest of this session was spent on loose lead and while she started distracted the trainer took her to a low distraction environment and started work with her here, she was quick to focus on the trainer and start putting in some great work and even went into the crate in the classroom like a champion today! Focus: Manners B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: This session was amazing with Tessa today, bringing her into the classroom allowed her to really focus on her skills away from big distractions. The trainer challenged her today with some trainer distractions and tested her on her impulse control on place. After sending her ti place the trainer would go next to her and at first try jumping away suddenly, when she could handle this the trainer moved to sprinting away from her which of course she was amazing with! So the trainer started mixing it up and doing multiple crazy movements trying to break her off but nothing would do it! This was a great session and the trainer could see just how much Tessa loves training! Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: The trainer wanted to finish her day off with a bit of fun and so worked on a trick! Next month we have a a western theme and the trainer thought they would get some early training in and worked on Tessa’s “bang” skill which is also known was “play dead”. She is still following a lure over however she is happy to get into the final position when the hand gesture is given with a lure in the hand so in order to progress her the trainer worked on phasing out the lure from the hand gesture today and introduce the verbal. She did really well with this giving the trainer one of the most dramatic “deaths” they have ever seen! This was a fantastic way to finish off her day as not only is it physical so it will drain some of her excess energy and allow her to settle better in the pet resort but it’s also just a lot of fun! Focus: Foundation C+
