Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Amora’s first session was greetings and drop. She did really well with her greetings. As long as you have treats Amora was very focused. Even in the kennel with kennel staff approaching Amora kept her focus on the trainer. The thing the trainer noticed was that Amora was keen to drop as soon as asked. Drops were then the focus of the remainder of the session. At first Amora did struggle to drop but by the end of the session she was dropping well. When having people approaching, make sure that Amora is a controlled position like drop. Using your foot on the lead also helps Amora remember what she needs to be doing if she does get up. And don’t forget those treats! They work great to help keep Amora engaged. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: The focus for Amora’s second session was place. This was done up the the big kennel yards that have loud dogs in them. At first Amora pulled towards the yards and took a little to settle. She didn’t want to stay on place. The trainer used the yes marker and treats to get Amora to focus and it wasn’t long before Amora was staying on place despite the other dogs barking near her. The trainer worked with duration at that time and Amora did struggle again after a time. The frequency of treats was upped and again Amora soon settled. It was a great session for Amora and it was great to see her settle well around the noisy dogs. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: The trainer work with Paws up for Amora’s last session. This involves just putting two paws up on an object. Anita was quite comical to try and get her to figure this out. She was so good focused that she tripped over the step. She then basically sat on a couple of the objects. But she got there in the end and the. She was paws up on everything! Focus: Repetition C+
