Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: Odins first session was spent conditioning him to his new trainer and the class environment. He was initially a bit hesitant and reluctant to take treats/have the lead put on when the trainer first came to collect him. This isn’t unusual for first days and being in a new environment. It didn’t take long for him to warm up to the trainer and move into the classroom and start taking treats and show off his sweet side. Focus: Conditioning X
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Second session Odin worked on place. The only rule of place is all four paws remain on the bed until given the release cue “break”. This skill is great to redirect unwanted behaviours and helps with self settling. We started by luring him onto the bed and marking yes. He picked this up quickly and we were able to add the verbal cue and begin building duration while the trainer moved slowly around the bed before releasing him. Continue building up the duration before increasing distraction levels. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Odins last session we worked on his drop skill. Odin has strong foundations of this so we worked on some repetition between play which helped him open up more with his trainer and helps strengthen his obedience by teaching him to respond to the verbal cues even in a heighten state of arousal. He did tend to default to a sit over a drop but was able to be directed into the drop by pointing at the floor. We also worked on building his duration around lower distractions before releasing him with the word “break”. Focus: Repetition C+

We recommend your next step should be…
