Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: First session Zolli worked on her loose lead. Today we worked in the carpark for added distraction level and focused on her engagement. Zolli can initially be a bit bouncy and excited when she starts training but quickly settles after some sit repetitions. Zolli walked well in this session, following direction change well and checking in with the trainer. She did become quite distracted when another dog was being trained near by and pulled quite heavily and barked a few times, we finished the session working on her sit and engagement with the trainer while the other dog moved by. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Zollis second session we worked on her drop. She is progressing well with this and we are working on lots of repetition to build a strong understanding of the verbal command as well as building up her duration. Zolli can go into the position from the verbal command paired with a hand signal (hand moving towards the ground) when in the drop she can hold her duration well around low distractions but can be quick to pop up when she sees other staff. When she does this we tell her uh uh and re direct her back into position. Keep building up her duration at home. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For her final session Zolli started learning Paws Up, the aim of this skill is for her to put her front two paws up on an object. This skill is a great confidence builder, a bit of fun and can help build rear end awareness. Zolli was initially quite hesitant to put her paw on the pod and would gently lift her paw and hold it above, eventually she placed her paw down and we marked yes and rewarded. She was able to successfully do this a couple of times throughout the session but needs more practise to become more consistent. Good job Zolli! Focus: Foundation C+
