Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Kongs first session today we worked outside on his loose lead and spin skills. He was a little bit distracted to start with and wasn’t engaged with the trainer. After doing a couple emergency drops on the grassed area he was starting to settle down. From here we then worked on his loose lead skill and walked all around the property, randomly getting him to do some spins here and there. This really helped him stay focused when walking near other dogs or when people walked bye. He did pretty good with his spins, he sometimes would get a bit confused and need the lure to help him remember. However most times he would respond to the verbal cue and hand signal. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Kong’s second session today we worked on his rollover skill. He is still very hesitant to roll all the way over and would just flop onto his side. We did manage to get one full rollover however the trainer was luring and pushed his legs up and over. Once he did this the trainer gave him lots of treats to show that it wasn’t so scary! From here we managed to keep luring him onto his side and letting him put his legs on the trainer to help stabilise himself. He hasn’t quite grasped the task yet however he is slowly gaining confidence with the skill. Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For his last session today we forcused on his paws up skill with the wobble board. This is a great skill to practice to increase confidence and balance. We mainly wanted him to balance in the middle of the board properly instead of just putting his feet anywhere. By the end of the session we were able to lure him on and move the lure backwards a bit so he moved his feet into the right position. This way it makes him work harder to balance correctly. He did really well with this skill that he could move onto a more difficult wobble board. Focus: Repetition A
