Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Baileys first session we worked on his drop skill. This skill is important as it allows them to settle into a position while distractions are around. As Bailey is still learning the skill a lure (treat) was used to get him into his drop. This was done by luring Bailey under the trainer leg and as soon as he was in a drop position he was told ‘yes’ and given a treat. Bailey was doing really well at the beginning of the session and progressed to no longer needed to be lured under a leg. By the end of the session the trainer was able to lure Bailey into his drop by pushing the treat into his chest. Again as soon as Bailey went into his drop he was told ‘yes’ and give a treat. The next step for Bailey will be to continue working on the foundations of his drop. Focus: Foundation X
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: The second session was focused on his place skill. This skill is important as it allows them to settle onto the bed. Again as Bailey is learning the skill a lure was used to get him to step onto the bed. This was done by throwing treats onto the bed and once Bailey had stepped on with all four paws he was told ‘yes’ and was able to eat the treat that was thrown onto the bed. The next step for Bailey will be to continue working on his foundations of place. Focus: Foundation X
Skill learnt: Play Comment: For Baileys last session we worked on his engagement through play. Bailey was no longer taking treats and therefore to utilise the session effectively the trainer started to work on creating engagement. This was done by using a ball (Bailey loved chasing it) and whenever Bailey would make eye contact with the trainer she would throw it. Bailey soon learnt that by looking at the trainer he got the ball. The next step for Bailey will be to continue working on his engagement. Focus: Confidence X
