Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In Luna’s first session we trained drop with distance. Teaching dogs to drop helps when your out in walks and when you want them to relax while your either talking or even if you don’t want your dog going up to others. Luna knows his drops he just needs to learn to drop when said not when he wants to. Towards the end he knew what to do had to had hand movement towards the floor then he would drop, and with the distance he did not break once. Next session I would like to work on this more so he listens to my command straight away. Training this at home is pretty simple, say drop and point to the floor when he does it reward him with the word “yes” and treats. If he doesn’t do it correct him by saying “nah ah” and pull his lead to the floor. Once he’s in a drop take a step back and reward take another step back and reward and see how you go. Focus: Distance B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In Lunas second session we trained lose lead. Lose lead will help when walking him if he pulls. Luna did pretty well with lose lead he got distracted a few time but other then that he did great. Next session I think for him would be focusing on duration speeding it up a little to see if he will keep up. Training this at home is simple, put him on the lead and take him outside if he goes to pull walk the other way and keep doing that till he stops pulling when he looks up at you reward him with the word “yes” and treats. We want his focus on us and not what’s going on around him. Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: His last session we trained Around, around us a good skill for recall. Teaching them this helps there concentration levels on the skill and not what’s happening around him. Luna did incredible with this skill and knew exactly what to do, there were a few time he would get lazy and wouldn’t move of off place but other then that he was great. Training this at home is easy get his bed and something he can walk around we used a cone, put the cone one meter from his bed, lure his nose of the bed and around the cone all the way to the bed, once he’s around the cone reward him with the word “yes” but don’t give him treats till he’s on the bed. Focus: Duration B+
