Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Amora’s first session today was focused on place training in the classroom. To start with we got her on place and released her a few times just to help her focus. After a couple minutes we were able to tether her while on place and walk around slowly. She broke a couple times to start with but we got her back on place and lessened the movement. Eventually we were able to walk around the place, squat down and act a little funny without her stepping off! When another dog entered the classroom, Amora jumped off place to try and investigate but we got her back on place and worked on her focus with the trainer. It didn’t take long for her to settle back down and continued her training. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Amora’s second session today we worked on her drop skill, mainly focusing on duration. We did this in the classroom with dog distractions. To get her into a drop we had to lure her into position with a treat, to start with she stood straight back up. By using the foot brake we were able to guide her back into the drop. After a few minutes she was doing much better and wasn’t standing straight back up. We could get her in position, walk all the way around her and reward. She broke a couple times when the trainer was squatting down trying to get her attention for a photo. This is a great thing to keep practicing, getting her in a drop and then getting the handler to sit, stand, squat and make silly noises. The more weird distractions the better, just remember to introduce slowly and not rush her! Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For her last session today we worked some more on her drops. Focusing more on getting her into position faster, she did really well with the dog distractions and was super engaged. We were able to use an exaggerated hand signal and the label “drop” to get her into position. She has some some really great improvement with this skill! To finish off her session we worked on a fun trick, rollover. We were able to lure her into a drop and then move the treat around so she flopped onto one side and then kept moving the treat further and further around so that she rolled onto her back and over. She did it successfully a couple times! This is a really fun trick to work on at home. Focus: Repetition B
