Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For her first session we worked on drops in the classroom. Initially she was a bit distracted but after some treats she started to engage with the trainer. We started off with dogs visible in crates but none out in the room. She did well but did struggle with staying in drop until released. Work on a nice firm "drop" verbal cue as she responds better to a firm voice and would go into drop with the hand signal and lure. As the session progressed we had one dog out in the room with her and then two. She was a little reactive towards the second dog but this is still a great improvement over last week and we were able to recapture her focus into drops with the other dogs around (but again she did struggle to hold it). Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For her second session we started with some foundations of place. Arya did need some luring to get onto the bed and like her drop she struggles with duration in the skill. Over time she did stop breaking as much and even started to self-settle into sitting or lying down on the bed. At home work on moving her on and off the bed with luring and her release word and start building duration by regularly rewarding her for staying on the bed. Focus: Foundation C
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For her final session we worked on just some drop duration with 2 other dogs in the classroom. She was a bit reactive a few times but did start to maintain a drop as long as the trainer stayed engaged with her. She wasn't as interested in treats this session so we rewarded her with scratches and pats which she quite liked. She even rolled over for a tummy scratch with dogs out which shows just how far she has come already! Focus: Duration B
