Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: For her first session today we worked on her drops with distraction and duration. We did this in the classroom, we got her into position and we walked around her doing funny movements. She did really well with this, only breaking a couple times, however she would quickly go back into position once corrected. To finish off her session we worked on her duration with the trainer sitting about one metre away. She did so good with this and just watched what was happening in the classroom without moving. She was able to settle really well and kept checking in with the trainer. To continue this training it just needs practice in all sorts of environments, making sure to keep the rewards up when distractions increase. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For her second session we started a new skill with Daisy. This skill is called “around,” what we get the dogs to do is start on place and then lure them around a cone and then back to place. The end goal of this skill is to send them around various object (hopefully by pointing and saying around) and then they come back. By sending them away and getting them to return for a reward is a great way to practice recall as well! It makes coming back to the trainer/handler a positive thing! She seemed to really enjoy this new skill and was very tired by the end of the session because she progressively got slower and slower! To work on this skill further, practice will make perfect. By keeping the cone a short distance from the bed will be important to start with, only increasing the distance slowly and once she is reliably doing it. Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Daisy’s last session today we had her working on her drops outside and even did some of the confidence course to burn some of her energy. She did so well through the confidence course and was running through like an absolute champ! After this we moved back to the training area outside and worked on her drop durations. She did so well with this and ignored all the lovely temptations around her and stayed in position. She was able to settle really well with all the different noises and smells and only broke once. This being said as soon as the correction “ah ah” was said she went straight back into her drop and didn’t budge! To work on this further different distractions can be introduced slowly. Focus: Distraction B+
