Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: We took Freddy to the classroom to work on his place skill under low distraction to go over the foundations. As Freddie showed he has an understanding of the skill, we made our way outside to test Freddie to see where he was at with the skill. Freddie did well going on place when instructed but found it challenging to stay on the bed. We focused on building his duration in the skill, putting Freddie back on the bed of he stepped off before his release word and only paying him a treat of he completed the skill in full. After some repetition, Freddie was happily staying on the bed. We then added some movement distractions to continue pusing the skill. Freddie would step off before his release word periodically, although increasing his duration in the bed as we went. Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: We worked inside the classroom for the skill, one again working on the foundations of the skill. Freddie would happily go into his drop with a hand signal and the verbal drop, but would bounce back up again almost immediately. We practiced with Freddie, only paying him when he completed the full skill, waiting for his release word. When he got up early, we gently guided him back down into the skill to teach him to wait for his release word. As we worked, Freddie's duration started to increase, with him staying down for up to 5 seconds at a time. Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Freddie went down to the carpark to work on his loose lead, focusing on engagement. Freddie pulled ahead at the beginning of the lesson, but after some we got him to start walking by our side. He would continue pulling ahead periodically but spent most of the lesson focused on his trainer. Freddie had good engagement throughout the lesson, looking at his trainer for treats. Focus: Obedience B
