Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In Bruno’s first session we trained lose lead outside, this skill will help prevent his jumping and help with when walking him calmly outside. Bruno did well with this skill it did take him a few minutes for his engagement but once I had it he was great. Next session I would like to work on this still with him as it does help prevent the jumping. Training this skill at home have him on lead and get him to walk on the left side of you, hiking the lead in your right hand and treats in the left closer to him, if he pulls one way walk the other way and if he looks up at you reward with ‘yes’ and treats as that’s exactly what we want from him is his engagement. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In Bruno’s second session we trained place with duration. This skill teaches dog to have a safe place and for them to relax on, even in different environments. He did well with place working with duration so slowing down the treats so a few every minute then we would break him from place. We also had three other dogs in the classroom training him as well. Next session I would still like to work on this more with him focusing on his duration. Training this skill at home, if you have a bed use that as place we used a bed that sit up of the floor do prefer but if not that’s fine, have him on lead walking towards place and say ‘place’ and point to the bed, once all four paws are on the bed reward with ‘yes’ and treats if he goes to break from place correct him by pulling him back into place with his lead, slow down the treats giving a few every minute this will help with his duration. Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In Bruno’s last session we trained drop with duration, drops will also prevent him from jumping because it is a controlled position. Bruno did pretty well with this he does like to push your buttons and will break from his drop but not letting him get away with it and he eventually stoped. Will be training this next session and see how long we can get him in a drop for. Training this skill at home is to have him on lead you can either do this inside or outside, saying ‘drop’ and pointing to the floor once he’s in a drop reward with ‘yes’ and treats, if he goes to get up correct him by stepping on the lead, keep your door on the lead until he drops he will learn that way. Focus: Duration C+
