Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: We spent our first lesson with Tily spending some time conditioning her to her new trainer as well as the slip lead. We did this by getting her comfortable with the presence of the slip lead, paying her treats as it got closer and closer to her. We managed to get the lead on her without any problems and we made our way down to the classroom. Once in the classroom we started going over Tily’s place skill. Tily wasn’t taking treats yet at this point so we used a bit of encouragement and very gentle leash guidance to get Tily to hop on and off the bed, with Tily gaining more and more confidence as she went. She had low engagement at this point of the day, although following her trainer’s movements. Focus: Confidence C+
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: Tily worked on her loose lead in the classroom, focusing on engagement. We played an engagement game to get her focus on us before starting. She started to take treats during this lesson, although having a challenging time engaging with her trainer. As she hit the end of the lead, we turned around and walked the other direction, paying her a treat when she walked by our side. As the lesson went on, Tily started to walk by our side more often and checking in with her trainer. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building) Comment: We took Tily down to our confidence course, which is an obstacle course designed to build confidence. By conquering each obstacle, Tily gains more self-assuredness as she conquers her nervousness. At first, Tily approached each obstacle slowly, but as she completed laps she started to gain speed, happily running around the course with a smile on her face. As she got to the end of the lesson, Tily had started interacting with her trainer more comfortably. Focus: Confidence B
