|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Dyson’s first session the trainer worked on his place skill. Dyson has a good knowledge of his place skill and takes great pleasure in leaping onto the place bed. Because he is comfortable with this skill the trainer increased the duration of place and then taking a step away, step forward and rewarding. Dyson did a fantastic job, with only breaking a couple of times. Once Dyson was not breaking with this step away the trainer started further distraction by jumping around and side stepping quickly in front of the place bed. Dyson progressed the skill to the point that the trainer was able to squat down a little way away and talk and say Dyson’s name and he did not move from place.||Focus: Repetition||C-|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Dyson’s second session had a focus on drop with duration. Dyson is still needing to be lured with food into position, and as soon as the trainer moved her hand Dyson would break position. So the trainer worked on Dyson staying in the drop position when the trainer’s hand was moved away. Because Dyson is so food focus, he did struggle with staying in position. But towards the end of the session Dyson was able to hold the position for a longer duration. This is a skill that Dyson’s owners can practice with Dyson to help him further develop this skill||Focus: Foundation||C-|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Paws up was what Dyson further developed for his last session. This helps Dyson feel comfortable having different things under foot. The trainer started with the bigger touch pad and Dyson was easily lured onto it and no problems staying on there for a few seconds. The trainer then moved on to the smaller touchpad and Dyson found this a bit more challenging. He was very focused on the food and didn’t really think about where he was putting his feet. However, as he is only a puppy, the fact that he was lured onto the … and kept two paws on there was a fantastic to see. The trainer then introduced the skateboard and Dyson showed great confidence on being lured onto the board and the trainer was easily then able to move the skateboard while Dyson had both feet on the board. Dyson did an awesome job today.||Focus: Confidence||A+|
