Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Hunters first session, the trainer focused on door manners, starting from getting him out of the kennels. Having manners near openings like gates and doors is essential to have so that you are not tripping over a pushy dog going through those openings. Hunter, although, really excited to begin with settled well. Once out of the kennels the trainer focused on loose lead walking. Hunter did well with this, with the trainer changing direction if Hunter wanted to pull ahead. By the end of the session the trainer could see Hunter deciding to make good choices and working hard to do the right thing. Keep practicing this at home, whilst increasing the distractions slowly. Focus: Repetition C
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Hunter’s second session was a focus on place. A fantastic skill for him to have to help him remain calm in a variety of situations. Hunter has a good grasp on the command place but broke quickly when the trainer bent down to pick something off the floor. The trainer focused on this by picking up food from the floor and as the session progressed Hunter was holding place a lot longer. Next time the trainer would like to increase the distance from Hunter while he holds place. Focus: Distraction C
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Hunter’s final session the trainer worked on his drops. He knows the command quite well but struggles to hold it. Particularly if he thinks he is going to get a treat. Everytime the trainer bent to give Hunter a treat, he would break dop to get the treat. The trainer then started just putting a hand out until Hunter no longer broke the drop position. This is something that you can practice at home. Next time the trainer would like to build on Hunter’s drop ability so that he will stay the position while the trainer moves around Hunter. Focus: Repetition C
