Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Arnie’s first session was drop. During the first part of the session Arnie was doing drops while with you he was quite distracted but still listened. His drops do need to be stronger around distractions. A good drop skill is what will help with Arnie’s jumping and also biting. It aids in helping with the rules and boundaries in the house. The trainer finished the session in the kitchen and although distracted at first he did settle better as there was less distractions than outside. Keep practicing inside the home. Do lots of repetitions so he really learns the drop skill. Then push for more duration. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Next up was place. Arnie did get very distracted by another dog in the classroom, however using treats soon got Arnie focused again. Arnie needs a good place skill to help tone down his excitement when visitors come over. During the session initially he was breaking place when the trainer moved, however again upping the treats to start with soon meant that Arnie was holding place better. He was also less interested in the other dog training as he was focused on his own job. Practice at home in low distracting environments first and increase distractions slowly. Focus: Distraction C
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Arnie’s last session was to teach him to start to walk a little behind the trainer. This helps with dogs who are reactive as it assists with stopping dogs propelling forward to lunge and bark. Practice down your hallway and as your dog starts to come forward turn into them and walk into them so the step back. Say back to them. Then turn and continue walking. Repeat every time they come forward. Arnie struggled a little with this to start with but was soon starting to work it out. His head was just behind the trainers leg and regardless of dogs in the classroom he did well for his first attempt. Focus: Repetition C+
