|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Hutchy - In Hutchy’s first session we focused on “drop” with duration. Training “drop with Hutchy was fairly simple as he knows his drops well, so that’s why we added duration in his session to see if he could hold “drop” while the trainer walks away. At first he would break out of his “drop” but with some correction by himself he know what had to be done. Hutchy preformed extremely well and his engagement was all on the trainer. When we added duration to this session he would break like I previously said but would go straight back into the “drop”. Teaching “drop” with duration we would take a step back then forward and hand him a treat, next two steps back the hand him a treat and continuing on with that to see where he would break. Towards the end of this session he knew what to do and what was right. Next time in Hutchy’s session I would like to see less breaking from “drop” and to continue with the duration, keep trying to reach his limits to see where he will break. If he doesn’t break from taking a few steps back I would walk round him or crouch down too see what he would do. Training this skill at home like I said I would start of with small duration and keep progressing it as the session goes on. Put him into a “drop” then take a few steps back reward and keep the pressure on to see when he will break so you know what to work on next.||Focus: Distance||B|
