Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In Ivys first session we trained the skill place with lots of toy distractions. First we practiced place on it own to get her brain thinking, then we added in the flirt poll some balls and a tug toy which she loved the most. She did really well with all of these distractions did not break once, the only time she broke was me bending down next to the place object. So then we worked on that, that’s something you could possibly work on at home but great work with her. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Ivy’s second session we trained drops outside with distance. There were a few times I would have to correct her with some lead pressure back down but after awhile she stopped and if she got up all I had to say was ‘agh ah’ and she would pop her self back into a drop. We were also training next to another dog that was outside in the kennels and she took no notice at all. Keep working on the skills with her. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In her last session we trained Loose lead walking but we have changed this up abit called ‘backwards walking’. So basically waking the dog long side you at any time you turn your body into them and stand in front of them, this skill teaches them to walk on the side of you but slightly to the back of your legs. If she goes to walk in front of you step in front of her and just stand there then keep repeating this skill. This skill will be perfect for you to practice with her for your mum. Try to do this down the hall way or along the fence line with her closets to the wall. Focus: Repetition B
