Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Targeting (touch) Comment: Newman’s first session we trained touch, touch is a great trick tittle skill getting him to touch a spoon or anything you have with his nose. Think this skill is new to him so will take a few shots but towards the end he knew what to do for treats. Next session I wouldn’t mind working on this with him so we can perfect the skill. Training this at home is something fun and a good bonding session, we used a Woden spoon you can use that or anything he can touch with his nose, put it in front of his face just enough for him to reach to touch it, if he sniffs it reward with “yes” and treats any progress is great progress. Focus: Repetition C
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: Newman’s second session we trained middles, again another trick tittle skill. Because Newman’s is incredible with all his other basics we want to gain his knowledge and add some trick tittle in there. At first he was confused by this skill but with some simple lures of the lead and food through our legs he got the hang of it towards the end of the session. I would like to work on this one with him more till I can add the word in “middle and he goes between my legs. Training this at home have him on a lead and food in the other hand stand in front of him lure his nose through your legs and can pull his lead towards the middle of your legs as well, when he’s in the middle lure his nose up so he’s looking at you and reward with the word “yes” and treats, when breaking him from middles say break and throw food in front of him so he walks to it. Focus: Repetition D+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: In his last session we trained around, this skill is a great recall skill and for there engagement on you as well. Newman did this very very well towards the end I had the cone a meter from place, and I would point to the cone and he would go around and go back to place. Next session I would like to work on this more test his skills and keep pushing to cone further try without luring first. Training this at home if he has a bed use that as place put something in front of him in can walk around probably do it half a meter to start with lure his nose around the cone and back to place until he’s fully around the cone say “yes” but don’t give him treats till he’s in on place. Focus: Distance B+
