Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Cookie’s first session was focused on her door manners and ensuring she isn’t rushing through the door. Once she approached a door, the trainer would ask for a drop while they opened the door. Cookie did very well and didn’t break once! The next step was then making sure Cookie walked nicely next to the trainer through the door, and not push past! The trainer went back to basics and had a food lure to get her walking at the pace wanted. After a few goes of that, the trainer faded the lure and Cookie didn’t push past at all! Keep up the great work at home and go back to basics if needed! Focus: Obedience A
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Next up, Cookie worked on her ‘chin rest’ skill. Cookie has great knowledge of this skill and a rest her chin until released, but she still breaks a little once a treat starts coming to be placed on her nose. The trainer was able to successfully balance a treat on her nose right at the beginning, but focused on her duration for the remainder of the session, just getting Cookie to hold the position while the trainer pretends to put something on her snout, “yes” rewarding her if she does not move her head. Keep up the awesome work with this at home!! Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: To finish up, Cookie worked on her ‘loose lead’ walking in the outside kennels. Cookie was highly distracted by the dogs and did not have any engagement or focus on the trainer. Cookie was then moved into the inside of the kennels where she gained some engagement, but still not a lot. She had stopped taking treats at this point so the trainer took her into the kitchen of the kennels, where she happily dropped and took treats. In the future we want Cookie to be able to maintain this engagement she showed in the kitchen, else where. Amazing work today! Focus: Distraction C+
