Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: Kali began his day with his ‘recall’ skill, outside on a long line. He did SO well!! The trainer began with him starting in a drop then calling him to come and he did so each time, without fail. The trainer then decided to test him more and have free range, then call for him to come. There was the odd time he would keep running past the trainer, but more often than not he sat right at the feet! Yay! Keep practicing this at home and remember to be the most interesting thing for him, make weird noises!! He goes nuts for it!! Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Next up, Kali worked on his ‘drop’ skill, through red light green light with a tug toy. He did so well!! This session soon turned into loose lead with drops outside, with a dog distraction as he seemed to slow down in his drops once the other dog entered the room. Kali had beautiful engagement outside, but was still slow in his drops with another dog around. By the end of the session he got a little quicker, but it is definitely something that can be worked on! Remember to use his non-reward marker “ah ah”, if he is dropping slower than you would like. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: To finish off, Kali revisited his ‘paws up’ skill on a plastic container. Kali was very hesitant with placing his paws on the pod, after several minutes, the trainer just picked up his paw and put it on there, rewarding him for it. This was a hint to show him what we want, and he responded well! He was still a bit nervous for the remainder of the session putting his paws on, but with lots of treats and encouragement, he began to do it on his own!!! By the end he was putting both paws on! YAY!! The next step for Kali would be to build his duration, which will also help grow his confidence with this skill. Awesome work today, Kali!! Focus: Confidence B
