Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his first session we worked on engagement and getting Oaklee used to the classroom. He was quite confident walking from the kennels and once in the classroom though did get very easily distracted. We played a food engagement game to get his focus - he was good most of the time but would pull on the lead towards people and dogs. He was a little reactive towards another dog but mostly only when she was also reacting to him. We started building a bit of drop duration which he struggled with - at home work on building his duration by giving him regular treats while he maintains the drop and having him wait for the release word before getting up. Focus: Duration C
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For his second session we worked on his foundations of place. Place is a great skill to help dogs to stay focused and relaxed - an important skill for an excitable dog like Oaklee! We used food lures to get him on place and rewarded him for staying on the bed. He did get distracted by another dog out and wasn't as interested in food but we were able to use pats and cuddles as a reward for staying on place and not reacting to the dog. At home work on the basics of the place skill - luring on, rewarding once all 4 paws are on, rewarding for staying on and releasing with "break" before luring off. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For his last session we tried working on drop duration and then the touch skill. However, Oaklee was not interested in treats by this session and was not very engaged with the trainer (more interested in the people in the room). So we just focused more on engagement this session and finishing off his day with positivity (lots of treats and cuddles). Focus: Confidence X
