Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: We put Zoltan in place using his brother Zimba as a distraction. We got Zimba to recall past Zoltan, using that as a distraction for Zoltan to get tempted to get off the bed early. As Zimba each n past, Zoltan happily stayed in the bed, showing some excitement although keeping all 4 paws on the bed. As the lesson went on, Zoltan laid down on the bed and started to ignore what was going on in the room, relaxing as well the distractions kept going on around him. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Zoltan went for a loose lead walk around the car park, focusing on his engagement. Zoltan had a challenging time with his engagement this lesson, walking next to us well but not paying any actual attention to us. This made it hard for him on turns as he would bump into us or hit the end of the lead as he wouldn't realize we had turned. We continued working, getting his focus back on us and the task. Zoltan wasn't really interested in any treats this lesson, making us have to try to get his attention with high energy and lead guidance. By the end of the lesson, he was paying more attention, although still distracted. Focus: Obedience B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Zoltan worked on his Ta-Da! Skill in the classroom. We did a revision lesson for some fun although Zoltan wasn't very engaged or interested in treats for this lesson. When we tried getting him to jump up on our legs, Zoltan was more interested in going through our legs, knocking us over throughout the lesson. It was good to see how his confidence has improved as he used to be scared of going through tight spaces and now he is willing to do it on his own. After some practice, we got him to stay jumping up and doing the skill. Although he jumped up a few times, he was very distracted. We finished the lesson with a few good repetitions and some cuddles. Focus: Repetition C
