Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: To start off Barney’s day, he worked on his ‘drop’ skill, through red light green light with a tug toy. Barney did really well!! He would drop each time he was asked, but sometimes he was a little slow, which is something that can be worked on!! We do not want to punish them for not dropping quicker, so still reward him, just give him a jackpot reward for his faster drops so he can start to understand that is what we are after!! Other than that, great job with him at home, keep it up!! Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Next up, Barney worked on his ‘loose lead’ walking outside. Barney had good engagement with the trainer and walked nicely beside them too. At first he was quite excitable as he saw trainer Sinead, but he settled once he got some pets from her. Barney’s engagement fluctuated during the session, starting off good, then lacking, then back to good. A way to keep him engaged is to add in some skills; drop, spin, etc. He also reacts well to weird noises, so give that a go if you need! Great work! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: To finish off, Barney worked on his ‘drop’ skill again, focusing on duration with distractions; skateboard, people movement and food. Barney did really well and remained in his drop the whole session. He would often use his paw as a way to touch the distractions, was quite cute! He would also try eat the kibble while in his drop, just slowly crawling his way towards it. Keep up the awesome work with his drops at home, keep testing him with those tempting distractions! Focus: Duration A
