Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: In her first session, Asha focused on further conditioning her reward marker 'yes', while also conditioning the classroom and other dogs. Asha initially showed nervous behaviour when in the classroom and reacted to the other dog. The trainer continued to condition her reward marker, this helped settle Asha. As she was more focused the trainer played a training game where they would say yes and throw food, this game helped Asha build more engagement with her trainer and confidence within the classroom. Focus: Conditioning X
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In her second session, Asha focused on further developing her skill 'place' within a low distracting classroom (two dogs visible in crates). Asha was initially distracted and struggled to engage with her trainer, however as the session progressed, she began to redirect her focus and perform well, she did not react to any dogs in the crates. She responds well to the place cue but struggles with duration and distance. When another dog walked into the classroom she did react (bark), however, the trainer waited for her to stop then began to condition both her reward marker and the other dog (yes, feed, yes, feed). This helped her relax and stop reacting. Focus: Foundation C
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: In her final session, Asha focused on further developing her skill 'paws up' on a step. Asha showed more confidence with the step then her last session and began to touch it quickly. As the session progressed, she slowly began to place both paws onto the step. She successfully completed this several times throughout the session. Focus: Confidence B
