Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session today the trainer took Henry for a loose lead walk while the shade was still out and worked on his emergency drops! He did so amazing with the loose lead walking and his door manners are amazing. His drop has also come along great, he was dropping each time for both the hand gesture and the verbal! He even held his drops like a champion even when the groundsman was right close by doing some work! Amazing work for the first session and glad the trainer was able to beat the heat and do a session outside today! Focus: Manners B+
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For his next session the trainer took Henry into the classroom and worked him in front of the big cool fan to keep the heat away! The trainer did some selfie for this session mixed in with a bit more drop as to not over work him in the heat. He smashed the selfie, while still needing some guidance with a lure from the trainer, he is picking up the pace in which he does this skill but not just this, he is successfully hitting a paw on each shoulder on his own 3/5 times but even when he put his paws on one side he still held the balance well allowing the trainer to take a photo which is what the end goal is with this skill! The trainer was impressed yet again with his drop skill, following the command even when nice and worked up due to the selfie activity! Focus: Duration B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Given his release word! Today the focus was on increasing the time he was holding the object as he was showing signs of knowing the basics of this skill (picking up the object and dropping it) to help with increasing duration the trainer spent the session pairing the release command to dropping the object, this was done at the start by giving the word just before Henry dropped the object on his own, when compliant with this the trainer then starts giving it first and rewarding when he drops it on time with the command, this is where the session ended however going forward the trainer will then use the to release command to start increasing the time he holds it in his mouth, starting small just increasing the time by mere seconds until building him up to holding it indefinitely until his release command is given. Focus: Repetition C+
