Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: For Jamie’s first session we worked on his middles skill. This is a good skill for Jamie as it allows you to place him into a controlled position around distractions. As Jamie wasn’t taking treats we used tennis balls as his lure. We firstly asked for a drop and then held the tennis ball so he would need to come between our legs to get it, as he got in between our legs we lifted the tennis ball so he would go into a sit. Jamie did really well however there were a few times he chose to go around our legs instead of in-between. When this occurred he was lured around and in between. The next step for Jamie will be to start trying to fade out the lure. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Jamie’s second session we worked on his loose lead at the pony club. This was a good session for Jamie as it pushes his distractions. Jamie started off poorly as he was nose to the ground and pulling towards smells. When Jamie pulled he was told ‘uh uh’ and was turned away from the distractions. After a couple uses of ‘uh uh’ Jamie started to walk really nicely on the lead. There was also another trainer who joined us at the pony club so Jamie could have dog distractions. He did relatively well and there were only a couple times he turned to look at the dog. The next step for Jamie will be to continue increasing his distractions while performing loose lead. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Jamie’s last session we worked on his drop skill. We worked specifically on speeding up his drop. This is good for Jamie as it allows you to place him into a controlled position around other dogs which you want him to go into quickly. Jamie did really well throughout this session. There were a few cases where Jamie would take a few second to start dropping and in these instances her was told ‘uh uh’ and put into his drop. If Jamie dropped straight away he was given a large reward to show him to was really good. The next step for Jamie will be to continue working on his speeding up his drop so almost every repetition is straight away. Focus: Repetition B+
