|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: In kiki’s first session we trained place with distractions training this helps them settle with all the distractions going on. Kiki was nervous and wasn’t really taking treats so at the start I just left him on place until he would settle down and keep coming up to him with treats. Towards the end he was taking treats and I started of with small distractions. Next session he was incredible with this so I think might step it up a bit and do some people distractions. Training this at home is easy, if you have a bed for him easy just use that, say place when all four paws are on the bed reward with “yes” and food, get some of his favourite toys to see what will make him break.||Focus: Duration||A+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In kiki’s second session we trained drop. This skill just lets you have control of him so if a kid is coming up to him put him in a drop and tell whoever it is to not come here my dog he’s in training. He knows his drops really well he is slow doing it but that’s only because of his surgery’s. Next session I would like to do emergency drops with him this is when you put him in a drop but you keep walking. Training this at home again is pretty straightforward saying drop, reward with the word “yes” and food, if he doesn’t do it correct him with “nah ah” and pull his lead to the floor.||Focus: Duration||B+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Kiki’s last session we trained around. This is a good recall skill helps them to focus on you with all the distractions going on. Kiki took some time to gain his confidence as we had another trainer walk in with two dogs, but half way though he was taking food and doing exactly what I wanted. Next session gaining his confidence with anything if our number one priority. Training this at home is pretty simple get his bed and either something he can walk around we used a cone, put the cone one meter from his bed lure his nose around the cone and point to the bed, as soon as he goes around the cone reward him with the word “yes” but only feed him food when he’s on the bed.||Focus: Confidence||A|
