Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Jordan made his way to the classroom to start work on his place skill. Jordan was much more confident today, taking treats the whole lesson while he jumped on the bed enthusiastically. We did some repetition to continue cementing the skill in his knowledge. As we continued we started to be able to just point at the bed, with Jordan hopping up consistently. We then started to add in the "place" verbal to start teaching him to be able to know what we are asking him with just the word place. This will take some time for him to grasp the meaning of the word, but we can now also start adding in some duration, as Jordan understands that we are asking him to go onto the bed. If Jordan got off before his release we'd very gently guide him back on with the lead and release him, only paying him for consistently staying on the bed. When training at home, Jordan will likely still need to be lured on with a treat. Take it slow and continue on the basics, not worrying too much on Duration but just cementing that you want him to hop up on the bed when asked. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Jordan worked on his loose lead in the classroom, going back over the fundamentals. Jordan did a very good job today following his trainer's movements, although having periods of losing his focus and pulling to get to something interesting. As we continued working, his engagement got better as we focused on paying him treats every time he focused on us. As the lesson came to an end, Jordan was completely focused on his trainer, walking by his side. Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Leave Comment: Jordan went over his "leave it" skills foundations. We continued with the same method as last time, with Jordan picking this up quicker as we went today. We started to add in the verbal "leave it". Jordan started showing a basic understanding of what we were asking of him, stopping trying to get the treats when told to leave it. Focus: Foundation C+
