Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: To start off Archie’s day, the trainer’s focus was to just get him conditioned to her as she is a new person to him and he did really well! He was taking treats right from the beginning and let her put the slip lead on with ease. The next step was getting the classroom. Archie did really well walking all the way up to the door, but then he got a bit anxious as it was opened. The trainer took it slow and sat inside the classroom in front of the door and threw treats his way, slowly luring him in and he did it!! The trainer had towels down and a bed ready for him to settle onto, which he did happily!! This is such an improvement for Archie as this happened in a matter of minutes, rather than a whole session to get him in. Great job, Archie!! Focus: Conditioning X
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: Archie went straight into his second session as he was doing so well and had great engagement with the trainer. This session was focused on his ‘crate training’ as we would like for Archie to be able to remain in the classroom and become more confident and comfortable in it. Archie started off with just hopping off the bed straight into the crate, following the treats the trainer threw in. He did so well! Each time he went in the crate, the trainer slowly moved the bed further and further away until Archie did not even bother going onto it, he stayed on the floor!! Yay! The trainer then had him do a drop, then go into crate. Archie only did this a couple times, but that is SO good for him. He then went back onto the bed and went to crate from there again. Awesome work!! Focus: Conditioning X
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: To finish up, Archie worked on his ‘drop’ with distractions, this being other trainers and dogs in the room. Archie was very curious and broke a couple times, but with the use of his non-reward marker “ah ah”, the trainer would then reposition him. This was done a couple times for about half the session. Archie was then feeling brave and decided to explore the classroom when the other dogs were put away. He was a bit cautious, but whenever uncertain he would go to the trainer with a waggy tail as if to say “look at what I did!!” and it was adorable. Archie made great progress today and we could not be more proud. Keep up the great work with him at home and conditioning him to new, ‘scary’ things! Focus: Conditioning X
