Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Ziggy was very excited to start training and was 80% engaged with the trainer as they walked around the kennels, cattery, carpark and grounds. Ziggy was very good with this and only pulled when something interested him (tree or area on the ground). The trainer worked on this by immediately stopping (he was unable to pull towards the distraction) and asking for a different behaviour (sit). It took him a while but towards the end he would check in and stop before if he wanted to smell something. Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Sit Comment: To work on Ziggy's door manners the trainer went all through the kennels, office and classroom and Ziggy was required to sit and remain sitting until released. Ziggy would sit as soon as we approached the door, however as soon as the door opener he would walk through without being released. The trainer worked on building this impulse control and encouraged him to remain until he was released. He did really well with this! Focus: Back to Basics B
Skill learnt: Ring a Bell Comment: Ziggy was very tired by this session so the trainer worked on a fun skill. In the classroom there is a hanging bell with rope and Ziggy was to pull on the to ring the bell. Ziggy started with booping it and progressed to mouthing it but was not at the stage to tug at it. He also quickly learnt that he could lay down whilst performing this skill. Towards the end of the session he progressed to then rolling on his back wanted snugs from the trainer. Such a smooch. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: Between sessions Ziggy relaxed in the crate and had a good snooze. Focus: Distraction A+
