Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In her first session, Tink focused on further developing her skill loose lead around distractions, including cats, people and dogs. Tink was excited to be training and struggled to show engagement, however as the session progressed she quickly redirected her focus and began to perform well. While in the cattery she initially lost focus but quickly redirected her focus once the trainer began to incorporate her known skill drop. This was very similar while she was around the dogs. We recommended practising her loose lead at home in a low distracting environment and slowly increasing surrounding distractions. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In her second session, Tink focused on further developing her skill drop within the classroom around multiple dogs training nearby. We focused on this skill to build her impulse control around dogs. Tink responds well to the verbal cue drop with a hand signal, she did initially struggle to hold duration. As the session progressed the trainer used a high reinforcement schedule (treats every few seconds) to encourage her to remain in drop. This worked well, she quickly began to maintain her drop. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: In her final session, Tink focused on learning the new skill paws up on a wobble board within the classroom. We focused on this skill to build her confidence in the classroom and have some fun to finish her day. Tink performed very well, she quickly interacted with the wobble board placing her front paws onto it. As the session progressed Tink became quite tired and struggled to perform the paws up skill. The trainer used the remainder of this session to progress her drop with a duration of around two high energy dogs. Tink performed very well, she did not break drop despite the high distractions. Focus: Confidence B
