|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Baloo’s first session today we had him conditioning to some of the new people and joined us with listening to Brent the mentor talk about recalls. We practiced conditioning him to the ‘come’ marker to start with as Brent showed us. He did really well with all the new people and the other dogs as it was a busy day.||Focus: Repetition||A+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: In Baloo’s second session we trained recalls. We had one of our mentors down from Melbourne who taught us how he teaches his recalls. First we conditioned him to where the food was coming from holding my hands full of food and saying come then we progressed to him being distracted and saying ‘come’ he would then whip his head around because we conditioned him to the word ‘come’ kinda like our reward marker. We had four other dogs in training around us he did so well.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Play||Comment: For his final session Baloo was introduced to 'play' under the guidance of our mentor from Victoria, Brent Dry. Baloo excelled at this skill using a tug toy and he learnt to play and then release the tug for a reward. He did a fantastic job and was very motivated and excited. This would be a great motivator for other skills. Great work Baloo!||Focus: Repetition||B+|
