Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For Cadburys first session we worked on his place skill with brush conditioning. As Cadbury was struggling with the heat we focused on holding his place duration instead of pushing him too hard. Cadbury was. Little superstar and held his place duration for the whole 15 minutes. He also did so well with the brush and didn’t react to it at all. To begin with the trainer was rewarding Cadbury after every stroke however towards the end we progressed to rewarded after 10 strokes. The next step for Cadbury will be to continue working on his place duration pushing his distractions and even brushing more sensitive areas such as his tail. Focus: Duration A
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: For Cadburys second session we worked on his drop duration with blowdryer conditioning. This was done to allow Cadbury to feel more comfortable around the blowdryer. To begin with we started by playing sound on a phone and was rewarding Cadbury. This helps to show that the sound of the hairdryer isn’t so scary and that it comes with good things (treats). Cadbury did so well throughout this session and remained in his drop while also starting to relax around the hairdryer sound towards the end. The next step for Cadbury will be to condition his to the blowdryer sound using a real blowdryer. Focus: Conditioning A
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: For Cadburys last session we worked on his drop duration with blowdryer conditioning. This is useful to help Cadbury become less nervous around the blowdryer. Cadbury was such a brave boy and did so well! While at times he would turn and flinch away from the blowdryer he remained in his drop. Towards the end the trainer was able to use the blowdryer for 10 seconds with Cadbury ignoring it. The next step for Cadbury will be to continue conditioning him to the blowdryer as he was still abit nervous. Focus: Conditioning X
