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

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: First session Louie worked on his middles skill and some mini recalls. Middles is a great skill to help with recall training and break up regular recall repetitions. During this session the trainer would ask for middles, once Louie came into position, reward, then release him and throw a treat. Once he got the treat they would then recall him. Rotating between these skills were a great way to help keep his engagement up. He did well with both skills, although with his middles still needs a slight lure at times to help get into position. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Louie’s second session we worked on some red light green light using a tug and focused on his drop skill. We were lucky enough to have an empty classroom this session besides a few dogs in crates nearby so today we worked off lead to test out Louie’s obedience. He did really well this session! Responding to the verbal cues from high energy and having a play with his trainer. Occasionally he needed a verbal uh uh to remind him to go into position but is showing great progress especially being off lead in the classroom! Great work Louie!! Focus: Obedience B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Final session Louie worked on his loose lead. We headed out the the carpark for some extra distractions. He was quite excited this session and bit bouncy to start but quickly settled. He showed some great engagement in this environment with minimal pulling ahead, when the trainer could see he was beginning to fixate on something or lose focus they grabbed out a tug and said get it and chucked it the opposite direction for Louie to go get, then had a quick play before removing the tug and continuing walking. Focus: Distraction B
