|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In Mavrerick’s first session we trained Lose lead with drops outside. Training this together makes them think about the two different skills together, if he got distracted with what was go on around him we would put him in a drop. Mavrick is a very excited boy and loves his training he knows his drops well just working on the lose lead more with distractions going on around him. We train this for there attention skills and for you as a owner it makes it that bit easier to walk him. Training this at home would be perfect even go out the front on your driveway and train him there, for lose lead the dog must be walking comfortably next to you, if he looks at you reward him if he gets distracted get him in a drop and wait until that distraction goes.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Mavrerick’s second session we trained drop with duration, for this is teaching him that know matter what the distraction is keeping him in a controlled position at all times. We pushed mavs limits a bit today firstly by toys then by the trainer walking up with excitement to see if he would break from his drop. Maverick did extremely well in the drop with duration only broke from his drops a few times but other then that he did fantastic Training this at home will help when you have people over, if you have a post you can leave him tied to that would be perfect getting him to drop then if he breaks correct him by saying “nah ah” and pull his lead to the floor.||Focus: Duration||A|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: In Mavericks last session we trained spin, something fun to finish of the day with. Training this helps you by getting there attention on you at all times even when there’s other distractions going on around him. Mav loves his food which helps so we would lure his nose around until he’s facing me again and reward by saying “yes” and treats. Training this at home will help you as a owner by luring his attention away from the distractions. Hold food in one hand and lure his nose around in a circle until he faces you again the reward with the word “yes” and treats.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
