Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Arlos first session we worked on his bow skill. This skill is good for concentration. Arlo did really well throughout this session. To begin with the trainer was using a lure to get Arlo into his bow however as he was doing so well we started to fade this into a hand signal. To begin with Arlo didn’t quite understand what to do and was instead shaking and biting the lead. While this was the wrong skill it was good to see and it showed he was really thinking about what he had to do. After a few minutes Arlo started to bow with only a hand signal and once he did it once he picked it up very quickly. The next step for Arlo will be to continue fading out the treat for just a hand signal. Focus: Foundation B+
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: For Arlos second session we worked on his middles skill. This skill is good as it puts them in a control position. Arlo did really well at middles so we started to test him by getting him to walk with us in the middles position. To do this a lure was used and the trainer held the treat infront of him so he would walk forward with her. Arlo wasn’t very confident with this however as the session went on he started to walk further and further. For every few steps Arlo took he was told ‘yes’ and rewarded. Arlo was also told to break after he had walked a certain distance in order for him to understand he has to stay with the trainer until released. The next step for Arlo will be to continue working on his middles skill with walking. Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Arlos last session we worked on his skateboard skill. This skill is good and it teaches them to focus and builds confidence. Arlo started off unsure about the skateboard however progressed well throughout the session. He needed a lure to get onto the skateboard and to begin with he was rewarded for just putting one paw on. After a few repetitions of just one paw we pushed Arlo to putting two paws on. Again once he became more comfortable with putting two paws on the trainer started to move the skateboard slightly rewarded him frequently. The next step for Arlo will be to continue working on his skateboard skills getting him more confident when it’s moving. Focus: Foundation B
