Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Targeting (touch) Comment: In her first session we trained touch, this skill helps with confidence building and since she first came in she’s came along way. Elaine was nervous at the start thinks it’s be awhile since her last day school and wasn’t sure, but towards the end of the session her confidence went through the roof. Next session I would still like to work on this skill because she was nervous. Training this skill at home is as easy as getting a Woden spoon if you have one and use that as the target for her to touch. Put it in front of her nose and sag touch, when she touches it reward with the word “yes” and treats. Focus: Confidence B
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: In her second session we trained middles, this skill is another skill to learn for confidence. She did well with at his skill cause she’s only new to it I would lure her through my legs and with lots of rewards. Next session I would like to work on this more with her. This skill is something fun for you and her to do together. Lure her nose through your legs and might need some pressure on the lead as well. Once she’s either standing or sitting in between your legs reward with the word “yes” and treats. If you can lure her nose up perfect, remember lots of rewards with her. Focus: Repetition C
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: In her last session we did paws up, with this skill I got her to ring a bell with her paw. This skill is great for confidence and seems to love it. Elaine did so well in this session she would put her paw on it every time I said “paw”. Next session might use a skate board and get her to put both her front legs on it. Training this skill at home have a object she can put her paw up on, you can use a container and flip it upside down. Tap on the container and say “paw” nah nice she’s done it reward with “yes” and treats. Focus: Duration A+
