Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building) Comment: In Elaines first session we trained the confidence course, it’s pretty straight forward this course helps build there confidence. Elaine did pretty well with this skill she knew exactly what to do, she wants taking treats but I think that’s just because she was abit nervous. Next session I would like to keep doing this course as it’s great for confidence building. Training this skill at home you can do any skill that we have been doing that will help her gain her confidence, such as the hoop, touch or spin. We have this confidence course that build outside. Focus: Repetition A+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: In her second session we trained the ‘hoop’, this skill will help her confidence all the sessions we’re doing is building her confidence and her trick tittle. Elaine did so well with going through the hoop, she went through the hoop four times with some simple luring. Next session I would like to keep working on this, we would love to get her to jump through the hoop, so we will keep working on this skill. Training this skill at home get a hoop that she can easily fit through, lure her nose through the hoop, everytime she takes a step through reward with ‘yes’ and treats, list of rewards because she is a nervous dog, even for sniffing the hoop. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Targeting (touch) Comment: In Elaine’s last session we trained ‘touch’, again another skill progressing her confidence, we have trained this a lot but we’re wanting to perfect it. Started adding distance. Elaine was quit distracted with other dogs in the classroom and other people walking in and out, once all the distractions stop, she was doing so well. Next session I would still like to work on this see if we can get her attention all the way through the session. Training this at home either getting a Woden spoon or something similar for her to touch, if she sniffs it reward with ‘yes’ and treats. Holding the spoon in front of her nose if she’s doing really well hold it further away. Focus: Distance A
