Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: Goose’s first session we spent conditioning her to the classroom and her trainer. She was a bit unsure and hesitant when the trainer came to collect her but quickly warmed up. In the classroom she wasn’t very interested in treats and was a bit unsure, we used this session to help her feel more comfortable in the environment and we found she shows some interest in toys which helped her feel more at ease in the classroom. This is common for first days in a new environment and by attending more day schools she will be more at ease each time. Focus: Confidence X
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Second session we began teaching Goose “place” and conditioning her to her markers (yes = reward & break = release from skill). The only rule of place is all four paws remain on the bed until given the release word. This skill is great to help build settling skills and can be a great “safe spot” for dogs who can be a little nervous in new environments. Goose began to take treats in this session and happily went onto the bed when we lured her on. Keep working on this at home and beginning to build up duration before releasing her from the skill. Focus: Confidence C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Goose’s final session we worked on her drop skill. This skill is a great way to redirect over arousal and jumping behaviours at home. By this session Goose was feeling a lot more comfortable and playing with the trainer in between repetitions of her drop skill. When in position the trainer was able to move around Goose who would wait until her release word “break”. Keep building up her duration around distractions at home to push the skill further to help redirect those behaviours at home. Focus: Duration C+
