Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: Lady began her day practicing her ‘recall’ skill outside on the concrete, on a long line. At first Lady was initially distracted, but with the help of yummy fritz, she became more engaged. Although Lady was a little slow with her recalls, she still came exactly when called and plopped herself in a sit once she met the trainer. Keep pushing this skill at home, the trainer found that using weird sounds helped gain her attention if she was a little too invested in a plant, remember you want to be the most exciting thing for her, utilise a squeaky toy if that will help as well. Test what gains her attention the most and use it! Great work, Miss Lady! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Next up, Lady worked on her ‘ring toss’ trick, focusing on building her duration with holding the ring, while having another dog in the classroom. She did really well! Lady was able to hold the ring whenever presented to her, which is awesome! Through the session, the trainer began to only reward her for holding for just over a second, and if she did less, the trainer would use her non-reward marker “ah ah” and ask her to try again. Keep practicing this with her at home, also utilise jackpot rewards for her extra good holds. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: To finish up, Lady worked on her ‘drop’ skill with some ‘loose lead’ walking in the kennels again. She did BRILLIANT today!! She showed no signs of reactivity and did not bark once, even while getting barked at by dogs all shapes and sizes. She had awesome engagement with the trainer and dropped exactly when she was told, remaining there until released. The trainer made sure to be loud enough for Lady to hear her over the other dogs. Keep pushing her drop skill at home, remember to be firm and loud with her. She knows her skill, so if she is being cheeky, use her non-reward marker “ah ah” and try again. Great work today, Lady! Focus: Distraction A
