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

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Spin Comment: Winston began his day by practicing his ‘spin’ and ‘twirl’ skills. He did really well! He was very excitable heading toward the classroom, but settled nicely and performed beautifully. Winston spun and twirled whenever the trainer told him to, but once they began to try fading the lure, he began to spin and twirl a bit further out and slower, getting a little distracted and just dawdle it. Keep working on this at home and use “ah ah” when he does this and try again so he knows it wasn’t quite right. Other than that he did beautifully and looks so graceful, haha! Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Winston’s next session was focused on his ‘put toys away’ trick, focusing on repetition. He did pretty well! He was quite excitable getting the toys and often shook them around a bit, but still put them in the toy box. Once another dog entered the room, Winston was far too distracted to continue, so we worked on his drop duration for the last couple of minutes. Keep up the great work at home! Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: To end the day, Winston worked on his ‘loose lead’ walking outside with another dog distraction. Winston walked well, but he lacked in engagement and the trainer struggled to gain it. Once they moved a bit further away from the dog Winston responded to his “yes” marker and accepted treats. Keep this in mind and if you notice he is struggling, take a step back from the distractions until his engagement builds back up. Higher value rewards can help with this. Focus: Distraction B
