Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: Hutchy - In Hutchys second session we trained “crate training”, the reason we trained this was because we struggled getting him in the crate after his first session. Training this we just kept walking him to the crate and putting treats in the crate until he was fully in the crate, then walk him away and do it again. Hutchy first stated off slow but towards the end he got the hang of it and would easily walk in to the crate. We were still using treats but he wasn’t hesitant towards the end, he did extremely well towards the end. Next time training this I would like to see if we can get him in the create without treats, this will take a bit of time to build up to but showing Hutchy that the crate is a safe place will make it a lot easier on the trainers. Training this at home if you do have a crate would perfect but if not its not a big deal. If you do have a crate just keep throwing treats into the crate until he walks in by his self, if he wants to walk out that’s okay let him and walk back to the crate and do it again with him. Hutchy is such a incredible dog with his bread he his a very smart boy so picks up things really easily. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: Hutchy - In his last session we wanted to do something fun so we went for “engagement”, training this we did it with a skateboard, getting him to engage with the skateboard. Again he’s a smart dog and picked it up pretty easily, in this session we got him to place one paw on the skateboard then two paws, then we got him to walk while his two paws were on the skateboard, he was incredible. Hutchy was perfect for this session he was not afraid of the skateboard at all, getting him to place his two paws on the skateboard with just simple luring his nose towards to board. Next time we would love to see if we can get all four paws on the skateboard and work our way up to get the skateboard to move while he’s on it. Hutchy is such a confident dog that I think he would be amazing in his next session. Training this at home easy if you ave a skateboard lure his nose over the board and he should put one paw on the board, keep doing that until he gets both paws, if your wanting to get the board to move while he’s on it, wait till both paws are on the board and slowly lure your hand towards the direction you want him to go. Focus: Conditioning A+
