Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: First session Leena worked on her drop skill. Today we worked outside for added distraction levels. Leena started out on the grass but did find this a bit challenging as she was more interested in all the smells so we moved to the pavement to build on her engagement and get some successful repetitions in. Keep working on her drop skill in different environments to strengthen the skill further. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Spin Comment: Leenas second session we worked on spin. Leena is still quite new to this skill and only in the luring stage. Like us dogs are left or right “pawed” and tend to favour a specific direction. Leena is more confident being lured into a spin in a clockwise (to the right) direction. She had lots of fun doing this! Spin is a great trick to help build engagement and break up general obedience. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Leenas final session we worked on “sit pretty”. This trick is also known as beg. Trick training is a fantastic way to build confidence and engagement with your dog and make training more fun. Leena really enjoy learning this trick. To teach it we lure her into a sit position and then move the lure up encouraging her to sit up on her back legs. She uses her paws against her trainers arm for balance but over time we can fade that out as she becomes more confident in the trick. Focus: Foundation B
