Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: Amora’s first session was car conditioning. Before this happened staff were doing things to the van. Amora did well in a drop around then men while they said hello to her and the trainer. Awesome work Amora. The trainer used the van and Amora did a great job of jumping in and dropping. The trainer used both the sliding door and the rear door and Amora was great with both. At home if possible use two people. Once in the car don’t shut the door but use lots of treats. The start to shut the door slightly. Baby steps don’t rush. If she won’t get in the car take it slow and use lots of treats near the car and slowly get the treats in the car. Use her meals as motivation and she may need to not eat for a day to get the extra motivation needed to eat in the car. Focus: Conditioning B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Next up were drops. The trainer took Amora back to the office as that was where she struggled this morning. Although no one was in the office at the time Amora was quite distracted by the smells and did break from position a number of times. The trainer upped the frequency of the yes marker and Amora settled well and didn’t break when another person walked in. The trainer then took Amora down the aisle near where there are lots of people coming and going and many good smells as the food trolley was being unpacked. Although Amora broke a number of times to get to dropped food or good smells, she actually did really well in an environment that is very noisy, has dog and people distraction and full of the good smells. Well done Amora. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Amora’s final session was place. The trainer used an old lawn mower for distraction. Amora was a little afraid of this so was breaking quite a lot when the mower was pushed passed her. The trainer treats while moving the mower. By the end of the session Amora was able to hold position with the mower moving all around her. Another step to further proofing this skill. At home make sure place gets moved around so Amora experiences different distractions. Focus: Distraction C+
