Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Lady began her day with some ‘loose lead’ walking and ‘drops’ outside. Lady did very well and had great engagement today. She listened well and dropped exactly when told at the beginning of her session. Towards the end she began to drop slower, so the trainer made sure to only reward her for the quicker drops, and using her non-reward marker “ah ah” if she dropped too slow, and asked her to try again. Lady seemed to understand and began to drop quicker again. Keep up the awesome work at home and if she is dropping slow, it is okay to go back to basics with a lure and help her drop fast again! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Next up, Lady worked on her ‘sit pretty’ skill. Lady understands the skill but still lacks with her duration, she just seems to have a hard time trying to get herself to balance. The trainer was sure to use a mat under her to help with balancing, but Lady only was able to stay in her sit pretty if she had her paw resting on the trainer. The trainer then decided to use this, let her rest her paw there but then slowly back away until Lady was sitting on her own. Whenever the trainer did this, a treat lure remained above Lady’s nose and she was rewarded heavily each time she balanced on her own. Keep up with this at home!! Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: To end the day, Lady practiced her ‘drop’ skill, but with a twist. The trainer would ask for a drop from the other side of the couch, testing her more. At first Lady was very confused, so the trainer then started to ask for a drop on the same side of the couch, slowly making her way back over the other side and Lady nailed it! The trainer was able to be hidden from her, ask for a drop and she did it!! Absolutely brilliant work today!!! Keep up testing her like this at home! Focus: Distraction A
