Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session we worked on Winston's loose lead manners from the kennels to the classroom and then loose lead in the classroom with another dog present. Winston was quite distracted today and took some time to settle and focus on the trainer. Once he did his engagement was fantastic though he would still move ahead a bit. Continue working on getting him to stay on the left side when walking and keep that focus high. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his second session we worked on emergency drops. Winston is very good at doing drops with a verbal cue only but does tend to move to drop in front of the trainer. The focus of this session was to have him drop to the left side and to drop while the trainer is moving/continues to move. Winston did quite well with this challenge - while initially he was a bit slow to drop by the end he was doing quite well at going into a drop while walking and lightly jogging. Well done Winston! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For his last session we worked on recall with Winston in the classroom. Winston is really great with his recalls! He was able to recall with the trainer in different positions and with him starting in different skills. We tested him near the end with some toys between him and the trainer - the first time he did pause at one of the toys but after that he completely ignored them! The next steps would be to recall him inside with high distractions and then working on the recall outside with low distractions (eventually building up to high distractions again). Absolutely awesome job from Winston, keep up the great work at home! Focus: Distraction A
