Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Jordan came into the classroom, hopping up on the bed confidently immediately. We did some quick repetitions of the skill to get his engagement as well as remind him of the boundaries of the skills. After a bit of repetition we started to work on his duration in the skill. We did this by putting him on the bed but not paying him right away, waiting for him to complete the full skill. Jordan hopped off the bed early a few times every now and then, although when guided back on the bed started to realise that he needed to stay on, remaining on the bed longer and longer as the lesson went on. Focus: Duration B
Skill learnt: Leave Comment: We continued Jordan's leave it, started to strengthen the skill. We used the same method as his last leave it lesson although we used the high value treats to tempt him and only rewarded him with the low value, which is a big leap for his impulse control. Jordan would try and grab the treats, but with a solid "leave it" he would ignore them. Every now and then he would be cheeky and still try grab one, although spending the majority of the lesson leaving them. Focus: Conditioning C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Jordan continued his loose lead walking in the clasrrom, focusing on him keeping his loose lead and following us on turns. Jordan stayed by his trainer the majority of the lesson, sticking to his side as we walked, although having moments of trying to wonder off to investigate things around the room. As we got towards the end of the lesson, Jordan lost his engagement and decided he didnt want to walk so we did a few more successful repetitions to finish on a high and ended it to reinforce it being a positive experience. Focus: Obedience C+
