Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Targeting (touch) Comment: Elaines first session we trained touch again this skill is great for always marking good behaviour keeping her confidence levels up. Elaine did so well with touch she has definitely been taught this skill before and her confidence is incredible now she’s so excited to get in to training. Next session I would like to work on this still with her seeing how many time we can get her to touch the object in a row. Training this at home is something fun and a good bonding session, we used a Woden spoon you can use that or anything she can touch with her nose, put it in front of her face just enough for her to reach to touch it, if she sniffs it reward with “yes” and treats any progress is great progress. Focus: Distance A
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: In her second session we trained paw but with this we got her to ring a bell. Elaine knew what to do with food she’s not used of touching it with her paw though she kept doing it with her nose but towards the end she did it nearly every time Next session I would like to do this more with her so she’s used of touching the bell and it making a noise with her paw. Training this at home it doesn’t have to be a bell anything she can touch with her paw, while I was doing it with a bell I will tap the side of the bell and say paw, if she did it reward with “yes” and treats, with this skill nothing is incorrect so it’s great for her confidence. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: In her last session we trained around, great recall session for the dogs and it includes place skill as well. Started off basic with her with the cone half a meter from the bed and with lures, she was abit unsure of the cone we had her going around but towards the end she didn’t take much notice of it. Next session I would like to work on this more with her still adding a lot of lures and rewards as she’s only knew to this skill. Training this at home if she has a bed use that as place put something in front of her so she can walk around it, probably do it half a meter to start with lure her nose around the cone and back to place until she’s fully around the cone say “yes” but don’t give her the treats till she’s on place. Focus: Duration C+
