|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In Millies first session we trained lose lead, still skill will help with her engagement and for when taking her for walks, making it more calmer for you. Millie did pretty well with this skill, we did this skill in side as it was rationing but her engagement was spot on. Next session I would like to work on this with her but outside and see how she’s goes out there. Training this skill at home, train either inside or in your back yard, have her on lead with the hand closest to her face put treats in that hand. When she looks up at you reward with the word “yes” and treats, if she pulls walk back the other way, we want her walking along side you nicely.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session we trained drops focusing on duration. This skill will help calm her and will help you, drops are a great controlled position. Millie did great with her drops there were a few times she would break but other then that she did very well. Next session I would like to work on this skill still adding distance and low distractions to start with. Training drops is easy as, I would still have her on lead, say “drop” and point to the floor while your saying it, when she drops reward her with “yes” and treats. If she goes to get up correct her by saying “nah ah” and stand on her lead as close to her as you can, so if she goes to get up she will correct her self.||Focus: Distance||B+|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: In her last session we trained touch with a bell, this is something fun and there no write or wrong in this skill, which is great for building confidence. She was abit unsure to start with but towards the end of the session she was touching the bell with her paw without me asking. Next session I would still like to do this skill maybe add a few different objects. This skill is some fun to train we used a bell for this skill, but can be anything she can put her paw on, with the hand that you don’t have treats in tap on the object and say paw, she might not do it straight away if not just reward her for sniffing or licking the object, when she does put her paw on it reward with “yes” and treats.||Focus: Repetition||B|
