Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Amora’s first session was place by the office while we were very busy with customers and dogs. Amora did have trouble at the start of the session staying on place. She would walk in and then walk straight back off again. The trainer used the Uhuh word and leash pressure to put her back on. It didn’t take long before Amora was holding position better. As more customers came Amora did an amazing job of ignoring them. She would look and then refocus on the trainer. The trainer also took this opportunity with the line up of people to do some drops to help her with greetings and ignoring people. Although not keen to get into position first Amora did well once in position and ignored everyone except the treat giver!!!! She did a great job. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Amora’s second session was a loose lead walk around the buildings where she had to drop near dogs and then other people. She did struggle in the main aisle at first near the other dogs but soon was getting into the position better. Her duration is great until the trainer tries to squat down to take a photo!! This was evident when she came across another trainer. Amora got excited to see her and although Amora dropped straight away she could help herself when the trainer went to take a photo. Going forward this will be a focus for Amora. Lots of squats near her and more low to the ground trainer movement. But overall she did do a great job and improved during the session. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Last session for Amora was ring the bell but using the treat n train. This involves Amora learning that the beep means the machine has spat out a treat! Once Amora realised this she loved the machine. So the next step was to get her to start at least looking at the bell. By the end of the session she still hadn’t quite made the connection between the bell and the beep. But it’ll be great to continue it next time. Both trainer and Amora had some laughs with this session Focus: Repetition C
