Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In Halos first session we work on “place” with distractions. Because it as a hot day we had other dogs in the room as well so that was a good distraction for him. Also had toys on the floor as well. Halo took a few minutes to listen to the words “place” and break but as the session went along he knew exactly what to do. We walked him back and fourth from “place” which was around toys and other dogs. Next session I would like to see halo not to “break” from “place” and for his to listen to the words a little quicker, other then that he did extremely well towards the end. Training this at home is easy and a good way for him to settle, if he has a bed use that as “place”, walk up to his bed point and say “place” once he has all four paws on the bed reward him with a treat. Then repeat this when releasing him we use the word “break”. Focus: Distraction A+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In Halos second session we trained drop with duration and distance. He knows drop extremely well we focused on more staying in the drop with distance, with that once he was in a drop and we knew he would stay in the “drop” position we would take a step back then reward him and keep going until we found his limit. As I said Halo knows his drops well so when we added duration and distance we were pushing his limits but towards the end he preformed extremely well. In Halos next session we would like to work on distance and duration with him, if he preform well with that I would like to add distractions. Training this at home is needed if he gets distracted with other dogs while walking him, irate train this in your back yard once he drops, reward him and keep repeating it until he gets the hang of it. Then had distance, taking one step back at a time if he stays in the drop reward him. Focus: Repetition A+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In Halos last session we trained lose lead, as we started training lose lead we had another trainer taking her dogs out side, every time he would look at me I would reward him as that’s what we want because his attention is on us not others around him. At the start I was just walking back and fourth with him until he stopped pulling once he stopped pulling I got his full attention. Halo was abit distracted at first but as the session went on I had his full attention Next session I would like to see his attention on me as soon as possible every time I had his full attention we would reward him. Training this at home is a must especially if he goes crazy around other dogs. Start by doing this in your backyard if he starts to pull one way walk the other way and keep doing that until he stops always have food on you once he stops pulling and looks at you reward him, if you think he’s doing very well in your back yard try out the front where there might be more distractions or even a park. Focus: Repetition A+
