Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Today in Hera’s first session we trained “place”, at the beginning I had to lure her nose onto “place” as we progressed she started listening to the word “place” and did extremely well there were a few time she didn’t understand and would sit next to “place”. Hera was incredible at “place” she’s very food driven which helps with training. Hera is a smart girl with some more training she going to be a legend. Next time we would like to see her to listen to the word “break” as we take her off, of “place” also would like her to listen to the word “place without luring her, she was doing it half way through the session then towards the end she gave up think her little puppy brain was tired. Training this at home is a must, because she is a puppy sending her to “place” clams them down. First start off with just you in the room send her to “place” and see if she will stay there, if you want to push her further get other people around and send her to “place” Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: In Heras last session we did something called “resource training”. We did this training as it further prevent resource guarding we used the technique shown in the private. Because she is a puppy she’s very good driven so we put some try food in a bowl with two toys in the bowl as well so it makes it harder for her to grab the dry food, while she was trying to get the food out of the bowl the trainer would walk up to her and gently throw high value food near her head for her to grab it. If she looked up at you while walking up to her we would reward her with that because she knows we’re giving her higher value food. Hera was incredible at this everytime I would walk up to her she would look at me and not the food in her bowl because she knew the food I was giving her was better. We do this so she learns not to be aggressive over her food while people are walking up to her or past her. Next session we would like to see her look up every time the trainer walks up to her, her engaging with the trainer is exactly what we want from her. Training this at home is easy do the same thing as we did, put some dry food in a bowl and cover it with toys so it makes it harder for her to get, then walk back and walk up to her a throw high value food (we had fritz) next to her head for her to eat, keep doing this until she looks at you while you walk towards her and give her lots of rewards as that’s exactly what we want her to do.
