|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In Hazel first session we trained place with duration and distractions, teaching place will help with calming her down and also with her jumping. Hazel doesn’t know place well so we did some simple lures on and off of place which we used a bed that was lifted off the floor, she did well with this skill as she is very good motivated and her engagement with the trainer was incredible. Next session I would like to work on this more with her getting her used of what we’re asking and for her skills to grow from place. Training this at home if you have a bed for her use that having her on the lead using one hand with treats to lure her nose onto the bed and off the bed when releasing her of the bed say “break” once she’s on place reward her a lot with the word “yes” and treats.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
|Skill learnt: Desensitisation||Comment: Hazels second session we trained hold first we just started simple so rewarding with her just targeting the toy. Hazel did pretty well with this skill still has along way to go but with more training session she pick it up quickly. Next session I would like to work on this more with her until we have her holding the toy in her mouth. Training this at home use something soft that she can hold on to like a rope or something like that. If she even looks at it reward with “yes” and treats, then if she sniffs or licks it reads that again. There no wrong in this skill so have abit of fun.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: Hazels last session we trained peek a boo this skill is good for dogs when teaching them manners and for the focus skills. Hazel did pretty well with this skill as it is her first time learning this, with this skill we would lure her through the legs and lure her nose up so she’s looking up at you. Next session I would still like to work on this skill because she’s only new to it would be good for her skills to progress with this trick tittle. Training this at home is easy, have her on a lead lure her nose through your legs she will get confused and try and go around but just keep moving around until her head is behind you once you have her through your legs reward with the word “yes” and treats do as many as you can to get her to stay there, when wanting to release her throw food in front of you and say “break” when doing it.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
