Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Door Manners Comment: In his first session, Baine focused on further developing his door manner. We focused on this skill as the trainers have noticed when coming in and out of the classroom and the kennel he can barge through doors to help reduce this behaviour. The trainers used his known skill of sit and drop to help get him calm and settled before opening the door. If he remains calm, the door would open. If he got over-excited the door would close. After a few repetitions, he quickly began to learn It was more beneficial to remain calm and walk nicely than to be silly. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In his second session, Baine focused on further developing his skill drop using a training game called Red light Green light. This game includes playing with the dog, getting them excited then asking for a control position. In this case, we were working with drop. Baine knows his drop well but does struggle to perform it when excited. That is why this game is very good to practise. He Initially struggled to stay engaged with the trainer rather than the toy, but as the session progressed have again performed well and drop one asked. Focus: Obedience C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In his final session, Baine focused on further developing his skill place as well as building his impulse control. The trainers have noticed Baine loves to play. To build his skills, the trainer put him on place while using a tennis ball as a distraction. Baine initially struggled with this as he wanted to chase the ball. However, as the session progressed, he began to settle and remain on the bed. Despite the tennis ball being around him. He was progressing so well the trainer was able to move closer to him with the tennis ball while he remained on the bed. Focus: Distraction B
