Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Tui started his day practicing his ‘loose lead’ walking and ‘sit’ skills in the cattery as he appears to be more confident in there, rather than the classroom. Tui did pretty well! Although he does not have engagement while walking, he was still listening when the trainer asked for a sit and walked nicely beside them. Keep practicing at home and see if you can help build his engagement! Higher value treats may help or even a favourite toy! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Next up, Tui continued to work on his ‘place training’, focusing on duration and getting him to learn to relax while on the place bed. Again, Tui trained this in the cattery and did really well! The trainer began with a few reps of sending him to and from, being rewarded each time he got all 4 paws on the bed just to get him started. After a couple minutes the trainer focused on duration and rewarding frequently to build said duration. Tui responded well to this and was relaxed enough to sit, then moving into a drop!! Keep building his place skill at home and test him with distractions! Focus: Duration B
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: To end the day, Tui worked on his ‘paws up’ skill outside in the sunshine. He did AMAZING! While initially distracted, once he gained some focus he stepped onto the wobble board with ease and 8/10 remained there until released! It is awesome to see his progress so keep pushing this skill with him at home. So proud of you, Tui!! Focus: Confidence B+
