Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In Charlie’s first session we trained lose lead with drops we added drops in to help calm him down while training lose lead outside. Charlie is very excited about all of his training, adding the drops in helps him to calm down. Lose lead he knows what to do it’s just trying to calm him down. Next session I would still like to work on this skill with him and work on the lose lead skill as much as we can. Training this at home I would start out the back of your yard. Have him on lead make him walk on the left side of you hold the lead in the right hand and treats in the left hand closest to him when he’s looking up at you reward with yes and treats as that’s exactly what we want. If he goes to pull one way walk back the other way until he walks nicely next to you. Focus: Repetition C
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In Charlie’s second session we trained place inside because he’s been abit excited and also there were other dogs in training as well. This skill will help him settle down. Charlie knows place well we we just kept practicing it and added distance until he was calm. Next session I would like to still work on this with him as we do use place a lot for dogs to settle and they start to think it’s there safe space. Training this at home use his bed if he has one, have him on lead walk away from the bed and when walking up to his bed which is ‘place’ say place and point to the bed, once all four paws are on the bed reward with yes and treats. If he goes to step of tug his lead back towards the bed until he’s on it again. Focus: Distance B
Skill learnt: Desensitisation Comment: In his last session we trained relax compliance his skill help dogs to settle I also added drops as well because he was overly excited again. Charlie was abit confused as to what was happening while we were doing this skill and most dogs are, it took him abit to relax but once he did we would say break and he would go and play with a toy. Next session I would like to do this more as it’s a new skill we all have learn and it works amazingly. Training this skill at home again have him on the lead, first you will put your left knee on the floor and your right leg up in a lunge position, once your in that position with your right hand grab on to his collar and left arm rap it around his belly, if he’s trying to fight you try and hold on to him. Once he stops and is calm pat his belly and say good boy, once he is calm release him and say break, then play with him for a few minutes and do it again. Focus: Repetition C
Skill learnt: Repetition Comment: Crate Training Focus: A+ Repetition
