Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Arlos first session we worked on his Quoits skill. This skill is good to help concentration. Arlo did really well throughout this session and even got the ring on the stick at the end! To get to this point whenever Arlo moved the ring closer to the stick he was told ‘yes’ and rewarded however if he moved it further away he was told ‘nope’ which indicates he is doing well but just not quiet there (keep trying). The next step for Arlo will be to continue working on Arlos Quoits getting him to better understand putting the ring on the stick is the aim. Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: For Arlos second session we worked on his crate skill. This is good to be able to send Arlo into the crate from any distance. Arlo did really well at the start of the session so we started to push him even further. He was able to go to crate from 5 meters away so we started to add in obstacles for him to walk around. Arlo struggled and was abit confused as soon as objects were put in the road. To begin with he started to do paws up on the chair. When he did this the trainer told him ‘nope’ and continued to point at the crate. Arlo eventually worked out to go to crate and after a few repetitions he started to pick it up again. The next step for Arlo will be to continue sending him to crate with objects in the way. Focus: Distance B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For Arlos last session we worked on his place skill. This is a useful skill as it allows you to send them to a spot and they need to remain on it. To push Arlo we used a clam shell with water for his place. To begin with Arlo was lured onto place with a treat. After a few repetitions the trainer started to send Arlo onto place and he picked it up straight away. Arlo did really well and went to place almost every time asked. The few times he didn’t go to place he was told ‘uh uh’ and put onto place. The next step for Arlo will be to continue sending him to place on different objects. Focus: Distraction A
