Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In Molly’s first session we trained Lose Lead outside, out side there are a lot of distractions so this was really good for her. We train this because with any distractions we want her to be able to walk next to you comfortably. At first Molly was abit distracted with different smells but half way thought I could gain her focus on me, she didn’t pull once all she needs is some confidence and she will be amazing at any skill. Next session I would still like to work on this because it is a very good skill for dogs to learn and for you as a owner as well. Training this at home start out the front of your house walk up and down the drive way if she goes to pull just walk the other way she didn’t pull with me so I think you should be fine, everytime she looks at you reward with “yes” and treats if she gets distracted that’s okay just try and get her focus again. Focus: Duration A
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Molly’s second session we trained place. This skill will help her calm in all different environments. We went back to basics with her as we did have another dog in the class room that was barking luring her on the bed but still saying break to release her as she knew what break meant. Training this at home I would recommend as it’s a place where she can relax on. Firstly get her bed snd lure her on to the bed, I was calling her name in a exciting voice or get her excited letting her know it’s okay, once all four paws are on the bed reward with “yes” and treats if she goes to step of say “nah ah” and pull her lead back, only use the small amount of pressure because again she is a nervous dog. Focus: Repetition D
Skill learnt: Targeting (touch) Comment: In Molly’s last session we trained Touch, I love teaching this skill because it gives the dogs confidence with something as simple as them touching something with there nose. Molly was so good in this session it was like she’s been trained this before. Next session I would like to work on this still because she is a nervous dog I would love to work on her confidence. Training this at home can be as simple as getting a sodden spoon as that what he use or something different, putting it in front of her nose if she sniffs it reward with “yes” and treats there’s no wrong in this which is great for nervous dogs. Training this Focus: Repetition B
