Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Jerry’s first session today focused on his place skill. We focused on sending him to place from a distance, this is good because the more distance we create the better his understanding becomes of place and it’s boundaries. This is also a fun one to do on a long line, getting them to run to place and releasing them back to you! Keep working on this one at home, try doing it in the backyard one the long line! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Jerry’s second session today focused on his engagement while doing loose lead. We started off just outside the classroom, walking up and down. Anytime he looked at the trainer we marked yes and rewarded him. Jerry did pretty well here so we moved a bit further to somewhere slightly more distracting. We worked around the driveway and carpark, here there are distractions like people, smells and other dogs. He did pretty well with not pulling on the lead but his focus dropped off a little. This is fine to start with as he needs to build up to these areas. Keep working on his loose lead in new environments with different distractions, rewarding for any engagement. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For his last session today we worked on his paws up on the wobble board. This is a great skill to build confidence in themselves and also their balance. Jerry did it straight away so we were able to test him more with duration and also tried to get him to put his back feet on the board. Keep playing around with paws up on lots of different objects, if big enough try to get him to put all four feet on! Focus: Duration A+
