|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In Annie’s first session we trained the hoop, this skill with get her used to going through something and to add more to her trick title. She was doing so well with that so we got her to walk through a tunnel as well. She did all these skills so well, it only took a few goes until she was going through the hoop by herself, and with the tunnel all I had to do was point to the tunnel and she would walk through it. Next session I would like to add something to the tunnel maybe something she can push to walk through as this would help with the dog door. Training this skill at home. If you have a little hoop that’s fantastic, lure her nose through the hoop and reward with thumbs up and treats. Also with the tunnel first through some food in one side and get her to follow that, once’s she’s through the tunnel thumbs up and lots of treats.||Focus: Repetition||A|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: In her second session we trained touch, we drew a big dot on some paper she had to touch which will help her with the doggy door as well. She did pretty well with this skill as she does know touch pretty well. Next session I would like to work working on this then slowly move it to the door. This skill is fun to teach and will help her with the doggy door. We used a piece of paper and drew a big blue dot on it, every time she would sniff lick or look at it reward with thumbs up and treats, then she should start to touch it her self.||Focus: Duration||A|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In her last session we trained the doggy door, with the same piece of paper with the dot on it and stuck it to the door. By this session she was exhausted she kept wanting to walk away and go to sleep, I got her to walk through it but not pushing it her self yet, but so close. Next session definitely needs more work on, kicking the lid up abit and putting it on her back as she walks through the doggy door, she’s used of it on her back just need her to push it her self. Not everyone has a doggy door but because where she’s living now this is our main priority. We stuck the dot on the flap of the doggy door, hold the flap up a little bit if she doesn’t touch it with her nose once her both front paws are through the door slowly put the flap down on her back and keep luring her nose when she goes through it thumbs up and treats.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
