Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: In mojos first session we trained door manners, with this skill we did drops in front of the door opening and closing this skill will help when you have visitors coming over. Mojo did well with this skill there were a few times he would break from his drops but towards the end he got the skill really well. Next session would still like to work on this with him until he gets this skill 100% and no matter what door we’re going through. Training this skill at home is what we would like you to focus on. Have him on lead get him in a drop reward with ‘yes’ and treats when he is in a drop, open the door if he goes to get up say “nah ah” and step on the lead and he will correct his self, if he doesn’t get up reward with “yes” and lots of treats. He did well with it today but at home it might be a different story. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Play Comment: In his second session we trained Red Light Green Light with drops, we trained this out side. This skill teaches him the turn off switch when he’s in a hypo mood. He did really well with his skill he knew exactly what to do. Next session I would like to do this more with him because dogs don’t have a off switch so it’s fantastic to teach them. Training this skill at home is abit of fun, if he has a favourite toy fantastic use that you can have him on lead and do it outside. So play with him for a few minutes until he’s very hypo then when he’s all excited get him into a drop, once he’s in a drop reward with ‘yes’ and when releasing him say break and the game goes on. If he doesn’t drop correct him with ‘nah ah’ and step on lead as we call it a foot break. Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Targeting (touch) Comment: In mojos last session we trained touch, this skill is something fun for them to learn and to train, touch is a skill we like to do to help with there engagement and with there confidence. He did really well with this skill he knew exactly what to do, we would start to test him by moving the object around we were using a Woden spoon. Next session I would like to try two different objects and get him to go to both. This skill is easy to train, get an object he can touch we used a Woden spoon but it can be anything. Put the object in front of his nose when he touches it say ‘yes’ and reward, there is no wrong in this skill that’s why it’s great for building confidence. Focus: Distance A
