Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Ring a Bell Comment: Kongs first session we worked on his ‘Bell’ skill. This skill is good for concentration. Kong was very excited to perform this skill and straight away started to ring the bell when the trainer pointed to it. This session was spent adding in the verbal cues ‘bell’. Whenever the trainer pointed to the bell and Kong looked like he was going to ring it, she added in the verbal cue ‘bell’. As soon the he pulled the string so a ding occurred he was told ‘yes’ and rewarded. The next step for Kong will be to continue pairing the word with the action. Focus: Foundation B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Kongs second session we worked on his rollover skill. This skill is good for concentration and confidence. Kong really struggled going past half way. He would get onto his back and didn’t want to go any further. To help the trainer would do very slow progressions, just expected the slighted more after a few repetitions. Kong got as far as rolling onto his back and having his back legs is the air. The next step for Kong will be to continue working on his rollover trying to get him to completely rollover. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Kongs last session we worked on his drops outside. This skill is good as it allows them to be in a controlled position while there are distractions around. Kong did really well with going into his drops when asked however he struggled to hold his duration. The trainer noticed that Kong would follow her before released so she started to work on him remaining in his drop even if the trainer continued to walk off. If Kong broke his drop when the trainer started to walk he was told ‘uh uh’ and put back into his drop. If Kong remained in his drop he was told ‘yes’ and rewarded. The next step for Kong will be to continue working on his drop duration outside. Focus: Distraction B
