Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For KiKis first session we worked on his place skill. Being KiKis first day we wanted to see him understand of this skill and started from the beginning. After 2 or 3 repititions it was clear she had a basic understanding of this skill and we could further push him. KiKi worked under distraction (people, dogs and toys) and maintained on place 98% of the time. This skill can be continued to work on at home in the house or in the yard to further advance this skill. Well done superstar! Focus: Repetition A
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For KiKis second session we worked on his drop skill. This skill is arguably the most important skill for a dog to master given how many benefits a bombproof drop can provide. We started at beginner level to get a better understanding of KiKis knowledge of drop. At first we lured her from a sit, after trying the sphinx luring (from stand to drop.) KiKi struggled from a stand but lured well from sit. Once this was done with a few repititions we tried again from a stand and he did great! Once he got the hand of that we moved to just hand signals adding in short duration and a release word. KiKi shows a high level of engagement and a strong willingness to learn. This skill can be worked on at home. Boiling the kettle? A few repititions of drop while you wait is a great way to increase this skill and you'll be surprised how much a few minutes a day can achieve. Focus: Foundation B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For KiKis final session we worked on loose leash. This skill is beneficial for obvious reasons but often gets forgotten and expected without training. KiKi seemed to get a bit fatigued by this stage of his training and was refusing treats. With verbal praise and play KiKi managed to have a very successful session with distractions (2 dogs on passive place, toys and people) KiKi really displays a great willingness to learn and please. What a pleasure to train! Focus: Foundation A
