|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In Halos first session we trained lose lead with distractions, we had other dogs in the room and other people which was a great way to train this skill. With other dogs in training around him he did pretty well, at the start of his session he was getting distracted but when he saw I was holding food in one hand I got his attention pretty much straight away. In his next session I think it would be good to repeat this skill as this will help a lot when walking him out side with other distractions. Like I said training this at home is a must, will make life a lot easier when walking him. In one hand hold the lead and the other holding food, if he palls a certain way walk the other way and if he keeps pulling just keep walking the other way till you have Halos full attention, after awhile he will understand once you have his attention he will look at you that’s when you reward him with the word “yes” and treats.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: In Halos second session we trained “spin” this is just something fun but also helps with his engagement to you, we had another dog in training and another dog one place at the same time. It did take him some time to understand the skill “spin” but as the session went on I barley had to lure his nose around. Halo did not once take notice of other dogs around him as he knew I had food, there were a few time he got distracted with different smells but other then that he was great. Next session I would like to repeat it with other dogs around again repeating this will help when he’s out and about to gain his attention on you as a owner. Training this at home is a must, because he does get distracted with other dogs around him, the more you gain his attention on you the more easier it will be for you. Holding food in one hand lure his nose around until he spin all the way around then reward his with the word “yes” and food.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Play||Comment: In his last session we trained Red light Green light in this skill we try and get there playful mood up then while there playing we get them in a drop once they drop we release them with the word “break” then a toy they were playing with. We had a stick with a flag on the end of it that we got him to try and get, after awhile he wasn’t interested so we were just playing with him instead. Halo knows how to drop dogs just find it hard to to go from one extreme to relaxing straight away. Next session I would love to repeat this till he drops straight away and see how many time in a row we can do it for. Training this at home would help the trainers out perfectly, all you need to do is play with him get his favourite toy wave it around then tell him to drop if he doesn’t drop straight away correct him by pulling him down with the lead, if he does do it straight away reward him with food and the word “yes”.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
