Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: For his first session today Archie worked on his emergency drops. Firstly this skill utilises their drop skill but it has to be done to our side. Although Archie has a good drop, he struggled a little bit when we asked for it on our side. To do this we walk along and then ask for the drop using a verbal and visual cue. We do the visual cue with our hand to the side of us. Since he was struggling we used a lure to help get him in the right spot. After a while he got better, as he progresses we can start to ask for a drop but keep walking while he stays in position. Keep practicing on his drops to ur side for now! Focus: Repetition A+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Archie’s second session today he practiced his bell ringing skill! For this we used the bell with a rope attached. He seemed to have some basic knowledge of this skill so we waited for him to show us what he could do. He managed to bite at the rope multiple times but not quite the bite and pull we need to ring the bell. He is doing really well at this skill, keep pushing him with it. Start withholding treats to create some frustration, this will encourage him to show more of the behaviour and hopefully ring the bell! Focus: Back to Basics B
Skill learnt: Ring a Bell Comment: For the last session today Archie worked on his fetch and skateboard skill. Archie did well with fetch, we used a ball and would trade it for a treat every time he brought it to us! He lost interest in this skill so we decided to work on something exciting! Since Archie has done paws up before it wasn’t completely new for him. We simply lured him onto the skateboard and kept moving the lure forward. This encouraged him to walk along with his back legs and push the board! He was a natural at this and did so well, the next step will be to fade out the lure! Focus: Repetition B

We recommend your next step should be…
