Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: First session TJ worked on his drop. Today we worked outside around dog distractions and on the grass. TJ was unengaged to start as the grass smelt so good but quickly settled and responded to the verbal cue drop really well. As the session progressed the other dog gradually came closer and each time TJ looked over we said yes and rewarded. He had some great focus on his trainer today. Keep working on his drops at home working on different distractions. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: TJs second session we worked on his loose lead. We started by the classroom on the pavement working on getting his engagement. We then moved to outside the kennels, we picked a quiet kennel block with only a few dogs in runs to work around. TJ walked well past these dogs, occasionally pulling ahead and struggling with engagement but no barking towards other dogs and we were able to regain his focus by saying his name and luring him away with treats. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Final session TJ worked on his place skill. We worked in the classroom around a few other dogs out focusing on his settling around other dogs and trainer movement. Again he had some great engagement keeping his eyes on his trainer and only breaking early once or twice. We finished up the session with some trick training for some fun after a great day! TJ started to learn sit pretty which can also be known as beg, trick training is a great form of mental enrichment and a great way to break up general obedience. To teach this we lure TJ into a sit and then slowly move the treat upwards until he sits up, then we reward. He is picking this up gradually but still uses his paws on the trainers arm for balance. Focus: Distraction B
