Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For Kodas first session we worked on her place skill, specifically working on duration around people distractions. This is a good skill for Koda as you are able to put her onto place while the kids are playing if she starts to get too worked up and nip. To begin with the trainer was running past the bed and Koda broke a few times. Towards the end Koda was able to remain on place even when the trainer ran past the bed multiple times while making loud noises and jumping up and down. This was achieved with the use of ‘uh uh’ if she broke and ‘yes’ if she remained on place. The next step for Koda will be to continue working on her place skill around people distractions so she is able to remain on place while the kids play. Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Kodas second session we worked on her drop skill. This is a good skill for Koda as it allows you to put her into a controlled position around distractions. We worked on repetition and slowly fading out the hand lure. She did well when the hand lure went just past the trainers hip however anything above this she took a little bit to drop. She was given abit of time go into her drop when the lure was just a point down and majority of the time she worked it out. If Koda didn’t she was told ‘uh uh’ and put into her drop. Towards the end of the session we were able to get Koda dropping with just a point down and a strong verbal cue. The next step will be to continue working on this as she understood it however still needs more practice before moving to just a verbal cue. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For Kodas last session we worked on her place skill again, focusing on being sent to this time. We went to work on a tug game to focus on her nipping however she was very overwhelmed by the other dogs and had no interest in the tug toy. Koda started off really well and was going to place from a distance of about 3 metres. However as the session went on she started to become more and more distracted by the other dogs and stopped going to place when asked. If she didn’t even attempt to go to place when asked she was told ‘uh uh’ and put onto place. If she was looking at the trainer and not getting distracted the trainer would take one step towards the bed to help her. Koda ended up refocusing on the trainer towards the end of the session and continued to improve her distance. The next step for Koda will be to continue working on her place sent to, to allow you to send her to place even when she is worked up and far away from place. Focus: Distance B
