Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her first session we worked on loose lead outside and in the cattery. Tilly was very excitable coming from the kennels so the first few minutes were spent getting her to walk nicely across the carpark and turning around each time she pulled. It did take her a while to start settling but once she did we were able to work on loose lead on the paved path outside the classroom. She showed good engagement in this environment and besides sometimes walking a bit too far in front she did really well (and listened to her "uh-uh" marker to come back). She dropped while walking each time when asked which was great work too! In the cattery she was initially very distracted by the smells but after a few minutes she was doing well in there too. Keep working on her loose lead at home and building her engagement during walks. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For her second session we worked on red light/green light in the cattery. Tilly got very excitable with the play so part of the session was teaching her some manners during play (not jumping up on people). She did quite well with her drop cue most of the time but could use just a bit more tidying to get her to go straight into drop a bit quicker. Sometimes she did need to hear the "uh-uh" marker before she would quickly drop so this skill does need a bit more work so that she knows she needs to go into drop before hearing her non reward marker. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For her last session we worked on paws up as something different around dogs. Tilly was really focused this session and followed the lure easily onto the cushion. She was a bit overenthusiastic sometimes and was starting to jump all over the cushion so teaching her to settle and focus a bit more helped her to start just stepping up on the cushion. She really enjoyed this skill and stayed so focused on it that she had no reactivity towards the other dog in the classroom. Well done Tilly! Focus: Foundation B
