Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his first session we did a variety of skills with Kong to work on his trick title! Kong has been smashing a lot of his tricks lately and we think getting his trick title is a great way to show off his amazing progress. For this first part we went through his skills such as sit, drop, place, spin, target, recall as well as a few others! He was a trooper throughout the session and performed well though did start the tire near the end. He really enjoyed his targeting and pull rope tricks the best! Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his second session we worked on rollover to start off with. Kong easily follows the lure until he gets almost on his back. He does seem to have trouble at this point getting the momentum to go all the way over so keep working on it at home as he is so close to getting good at it! As he was struggling with rollover we moved onto doing the play dead skill for the latter half of the session. He was quite good at this with following the hand lure and was able to lie still on his side a few times. He did get quite distracted when another trainer walked in and needed food lures from then on to stay focused enough on the skill. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his last session we worked on loose lead with drops for Kong. For the first few minutes he was a bit naughty pulling on the lead to look at dogs in crates in the classroom so we started off doing laps past them until he had settled. Once he was settled we took him out onto the grass. Besides being distracted by a few trees he did quite well. He did break his drop when another staff member walked by though so continuing to practice this skill in distracting environments will help strengthen it. Focus: Distraction B
