Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Daisy's first session was place. She did struggle at first and wanted to pop off place as soon as the trainer moved one step away. As the session progressed the trainer was able to start running passed Daisy and she held her position. The ball also tested her but by the end of the session, she was doing well. The last couple of minutes the trainer just stood near Daisy while Daisy was on place. Daisy really struggled with this and did carry on a little. But the trainer just ignored it and after a little time Daisy settled and was quiet. Keep.practicing at home as this will help Daisy to learn to settle. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Spin Comment: Daisy’s second session was spin. This is a great skill to help Daisy engage with her handler as well as giving her another job to do. Spin can be used while out walking. Daisy progressed well with this skill. The trainer started by luring Daisy around with a treat. But by the end of the session the trainer was starting to fade out that lure. Daisy did really well with this. Keep practicing at home. Keep the food lure to start with and then fade it out as Daisy gets used to the skill again. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Daisy’s final session was drop. Although Daisy is familiar with drop she really struggled to hold the position for any length of time. The trainer used the yes marker to help Daisy to hold position and she progressed to the point that the trainer was able to move around Daisy a little. When practicing at home keep distractions low and reward high to help Daisy hold position. Focus: Distraction C+
