Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Exposure Comment: In her first session, Tilly focused on building her confidence with an exposure walk around the Pet Retreat facility. We focused on this to ensure she was comfortable and confident in the environment before beginning training. Tilly greeted the trainers with a happy smile and tail wag. While on her exposure walk in the environment she showed great confidence, she did become a little nervous when walking around the kennels with the loud dogs. Although with some conditioning and cuddles she quickly began to build her confidence. The trainers also used this time to begin working on her loose lead walking. Focus: Confidence X
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In her second session, Tilly focused on learning the new skill drop within the classroom. We focused on this skill to begin building her impulse control and as an alternative behavior to jumping. Tilly quickly followed a lure into drop while standing, when in drop she struggled to hold duration. As the session progressed, her duration began to grow and she successfully remained in drop for 1 minute with frequent treats. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In her final session Tilly focused on learning the new skill place within the classroom. We focused on this skill similarly to her drop to build her impulse control and to help redirect jumping. Till happily jumped onto the raised bed for treats, once on she relaxed into sit and remained until the trainer encouraged her off. This is very impressive for her first session. She can break place when distractions are added, including people and dogs walking in. During the session she did react (bark) at a dog when it entered the classroom, using treats the trainer slowly redirected her focus and continue to work on her place skill. Focus: Foundation C
