Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In Millies first session we trained Lose lead, training this will help when walking her on a lead and with your engagement with her as a owner. Millie did pretty well with this skill she did get distracted at first but towards the end of the session she was doing great and had her focus throughout half the session. Next session I think working on this is definitely a priority she has progressed since her last session but we want to make this skill till we can take her out side. Training this at home first do it in your house preferably when no one is home, have her on a lead and treats in the other hand, lure her nose as she walks then lure her nose around when your wanting to turn around, she’s not bad at this skill everytime she looks up at you reward with the he word “yes” and treats we want her engagement. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In Millies second session we trained place with distractions. This skill helps her settle no matter what the distractions are. Millie did pretty well with this skill she did break a few times with be bending down but towards the end she didn’t break once so I added a squeaky toy to it with that she broke once but other then that she didn’t break from place after that. Next session I would like to work on this skill more with her until she stops breaking with the small distractions Training this skill will help her to settle, if she has a bed use that as “place” have her on lead send her to place by saying “place” and pointing to it, when all four paws are on place reward with “yes” and treats if she goes to get off correct her with “nah ah” and pull her lead back till she’s on place again, start with small distractions at first. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Millies last session we trained Drop, this skill will help improve is focus on you and will help you as a owner having him in a controlled position when our taking him for walks later down the track. Millie knows her drops pretty well just teaching her to stay with distance is the main key she didn’t to do bad with distance but needs more work. Next session would like to work on this until we can put her in a drop while we keep walking. Training this skill at home is easy have her on the lead and always have treats in one hand, use hand signal and move your hand towards the floor while saying “drop” when she’s in a drop reward with “yes” and treats, if she breaks correct her by pulling her lead to the floor with the word “nah ah” or put your foot on the lead as close to her body as you can and she will correct her self. Focus: Distance B
