Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Spin Comment: In mavs first session we trained spin, because he’s great with all the basic skills I wanted to add something abit more fun for him, simple luring with some food. Maverick was confused at the start of his session we was training to work it out but as the session progressed we saw him improve and was following the lures. In his next session I would like to build his skills up with this trick. Starting off with some tight luring then slowly moving the lure further away from his nose. Training this is easy and is as simple as having some treats in the hand your going to lure his nose around, keep luring his noise around until he does a full circle then once he’s facing you reward with the word “yes” and treats. Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: In mavs second session we trained “around”. Teaching around is good for getting there attention away from any distractions and focusing on you. Mav preformed extremely well in this session we had so much fun and he is a quick learner. Next session I would like to work on this with him again. Training this at home is again something fun as he knows all his basic skill pretty well. If you have a cone or even a chair put that probably half a meter to start with then increase the distance as the session progresses. First start on place, Lure his nose around the cone one he’s around the cone and facing you reward him with the word “yes” but don’t give him the food until he’s on place. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Mavs third session we trained drops outside, first we started of in the classroom which he was perfect then when we went outside there were obviously more distractions. Mav was abit distracted outside but towards the end he started to listen and his focus started progressing. Next session I would still like to work on this until I can get his focus on me at all times. Training this at home is a great skill to get them to calm or even if there is another dog coming up to him or another person that you don’t want him to interact with. Because he knows his drops well get him into a drop while you keep walking, if he drops while your still walking reward with the word “yes” and treats, when he’s in a drop you have control of him. Focus: Distraction A
