Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: To start off Baloo’s day, he began with his ‘skateboard’ skill, focusing on duration. Baloo loves his skateboard and is so excited whenever he sees it. We wanted to work on his duration as he often steps off when he feels like it. To build his duration, the trainer would use his release word just before he stepped off, just catching him to help him understand he is not to step off until released. Keep doing the at home, is doing so well and is getting more confident at pushing himself!! Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Next up, Baloo worked on his ‘drop’ skill, focusing on duration with distractions; balls, toys, instruments and food. He did so well! He withstood every distraction and remained in his drop, up until near the end, he broke when the trainer went away to get more treats. With the use of his non-reward marker “ah ah”, he plopped himself back down. Keep on pushing him with this skill to help maintain the strength of it. Great job! Focus: Duration A
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: To finish off, Baloo worked on his ‘loose lead’ walking outside. Baloo had good engagement, but was often walking in front of the trainer today. With the use of his non-reward marker “ah ah”, he would walk back in line with the trainer. Keep pushing this with him, he knows it, but sometimes like to test you. If he walks ahead and “ah ah” does not work, you can turn around and try again. The last 5 minutes of his session was spent making the birthday message, Happy Birthday!! We hope you have a good day and enjoy the picture!🥰 Focus: Distraction B+
