Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session today the trainer took Beanie for some loose lead walking. Beanie was very distracted today and didn’t seem to want to take any of the treats we had here. The trainer had to take him back to basics and work him in the low distraction environment of the concrete out the front of the classroom. However since he has done this many times before his recovery time to get back to where he was is much shorter and he was soon walking nicely next to the trainer keeping a loose lead. When he did get to the end of the line a few times the trainer utilised the turning method and he was quick to come back to the trainer, the biggest distraction for him today was the Orr resort attendants, he seemed more interested when they were walking as a group talking about work rather than when they were on their own, he just wants to know the goss! Focus: Manners C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For his second session today the trainer worked on his place skill. He was still not taking treat at the start of the session so to make sure this session was utilised effectively the trainer spent the first 5 minutes just engaging Beanie with a little excited play just to get him moving around and in an excited mood, through this paired with a few sits and drops the trainer was able to really charge up and activate his training drive today and he started taking fritz as a reward! With his place skill the trainer did need to go back to basics initially luring him on with some treats and rewarding, but like his first session Beanie was able to recover very quickly, this is something we see often in dogs, they will need to be reminded of the skills if they haven’t done them consistently for a while, however each time we do a refresher course the dog will get quicker and quicker with the recovery time getting back to where they were when you last trained the skill, this is what happened today and by the end of the session the trainer was able to send Beanie to and from his place mat at a medium distance. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Spin Comment: For his last session today the trainer thought they would end on some fun trick training! They worked on Beanie’s spin trick as it’s fun and active! The trainer realised that it was easier to get Beanie to do the spin if he was moving, so to make sure he hit as many successful spins as possible they made sure he kept moving throughout the exercise! He is still following a lure however the trainer close to the end of the session was able to get some repetitions out of him using the verbal command and no treat lure showing us he is starting to learn the verbal which is awesome! He was great today, it’s obvious he had come more comfortable with us however he still needs some work on some of his basic obedience skills to really proof them in different scenarios and situations. In order to utilise the day as best as possible we recommend providing some high value treats of Beanie’s as while he was starting to take the fritz it just isn’t super enticing for him and if we can get him locked on to the food rewards it will make training his skills much faster. Focus: Repetition C+
