Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Zacs first session we worked on his drop skill. This skill is good for having them in a controlled position around distractions. We specifically worked on duration so that way Zac can remain in his drop while you can walk off and give attention to Tessa if needed. Zac was really good going into his drops however did struggle abit more holding his duration. At times Zac would break his drop before being released. He would then be told ‘uh uh’ and be put back into his drop. If Zac remained in his drop while the trainer stepped back he was rewarded. Zac was such a happy boy throughout this session and constantly had his tail wagging, even when he was told ‘uh uh’ he would often correct himself and continue to wag his tail. The next step for Zac will be to continue working on his duration getting up to walking 3 metres away from him. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Zacs second session we worked on his loose lead outside with Tessa. This is a good skill to teach them to walk nicely on a lead without pulling. Zac did amazing throughout this session and showed some awesome engagement! Towards the end Zac started to slow down and would often stop instead of turning with the trainer. To encourage Zac to keep going the trainer would use a lure and call his name. Cars also proved to be a distraction for Zac however he was quick to refocus on the trainer. The next step for Zac will be to continue working on his loose lead pushing his distractions even further. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For Zacs last session we worked on his place skill. This skill is good as it allows them to settle onto the bed. Zac again was a superstar for his place skill showing engagement for 90% of the time. There were a few times which Zac stepped off but with the use of ‘uh uh’ he would correct himself and go back onto place. The next step for Zac will be to increase his distractions further. Focus: Distraction A
