|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Luther’s first session was recall. And this time the trainer worked on conditioning the word come. So that when Luther hears that word he knows he is going to get a treat. Luther was quite distracted outside today and even standing next to the trainer he didn’t respond to the come word. The trainer took Luther to the classroom and this helped as there were less distractions. Towards the end of the session the trainer worked on training Luther to finish the recall in the correct position. Luther did a great job with this and coupled with saying the come command further helped Luther become conditioned to the cone command.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Next up was place. The trainer did this session in the classroom due to the rain. Luther did a great job around other dogs training nearby. The trainer then added in bigger distractions, like banging a pool noodle on the ground. Luther wasn’t keen on this but did hold place which was great! During this session Luther also did some send to place. At first he needed the Uhuh word to continue into place but overall he did a great job and was much more focused than he was in the first session. Try send to place at home and slowly increase the distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Last up for Luther was drop. He struggled with this today and the trainer had to use a lure to get Luther into position. A few quick repetitions meant Luther started getting into the drop position quicker. The trainer the. Increased the duration for Luther and again he struggled at first. As the session progressed he held position better. Luther does know drop and has done better before. Keep practicing at home. Do it in different parts of the house so Luther is exposed to different distractions.||Focus: Repetition||C|
