|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Odin- In Odin’s first session we Trained place, to start off with because he does get very excited getting him out of the kennel was challenging, when we walked out side I just did “lose lead” with him before we started the session because he was pulling we need to teach him that’s not okay so when he would pull I would walk the other way till he stoped. Training “place” with him wasn’t difficult at all, because “place” is a great way to train them to clam, training place all four paws must be on a bed or mat doesn’t really matter then reward him. Odin went pretty well with place because it was a good time for him to try and settle, as soon as we got of “place” he would pull again so we would just turn around and take him straight to “place”. Towards the end of his session he was getting the hang of the session, we added some distance in there with him, so keeping him on “place” and taking a step back then reward if he doesn’t “break” from place. Next time in his session we would like to see him to tray and clam down straight away, keeping him on “place” until he does so. When saying “break” make sure he doesn’t pull and if so send him back to place. Training this at home would work perfectly if you have family or friends over, like I said sending him to “place” is his time to relax, I left him on “place” as I was training another dog in the room and we didn’t even know he was there. When training this he knows the word “place” so you shouldn’t have to lure his nose on to it, if you have a spot you can tie him to while he is on “place” is perfect because if he try’s to “break” his self he will correct his self.||Focus: Repetition||C-|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In odin’s second session we trained “lose lead” because he needs to learn some manners when just walking. As he pulled I would just walk back the other way until he stoped and his focus was on me, and if so we would reward him so he knows that’s the right thing to do. We did have others dogs outside so I think It was bit to much for him at the start. Odin started off a bit naughty but towards the end of this session he preformed well. We had another dog out in training where we were and he would just break and pull you to go up to it, when that was happening we would try and put him in a drop until he calmed down. Next time in his session we would like to see him to try and engage with the trainer more on “lose lead” then what’s happening around the place. Also next time we will train this with less distractions to see how he will go with that. Training this at home is easy grab his lead and go out side making sure you have treats on you at all times, if he goes to pull you walk the other way and show him who is boss, keep doing this until he stops. If he looks at you while walking reward that because he’s engaging with you and not what’s happening around him. If you do decide to train this in a new environment and he keeps pulling you I would just put him in a drop until he decides to clam down, I would recommend not training this out side of your home, make sure you get this perfect at home then try it at a dog park or somewhere else.||Focus: Repetition||C-|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In odin’s Last session we trained “drop” we were out side for this session with another dog and people. First we sent him to “place” because that where he is clam, as he calmed down we would say “break” walk a little then send him to “drop” and kept walking around and sending him to “drop” in random areas. In this session odin did extremely well we didn’t have much distractions as the second time which I think did help him, he knows his words “drop” and “place” very well and he is food driven which makes training easier. Next session we would love to add a few more distractions to see if he will listen to the trainer, if not we will start off simple then add a few more distraction as the session progresses. Training this at home is pretty similar to the second session, first send him to “place” so he can clam down, once he is clam say “break” walk a little then put him in a “drop” and reward him, if he starts to get excited again either place him in a “drop” or send him to “place”. If he does “break” when your not wanting him what we do is called a “foot break” which mean when he’s in a “drop” and goes to get up putting your foot on the lead so when he goes to get up he will correct his self.||Focus: Repetition||B|
We recommend your next step should be…
A: Outstanding (90 – 100%) I understand my training, Neat & Complete! Ready to move on to higher difficulty & distraction
B: Great Work (80-89%) I mostly understand, Almost neat & complete! Needs practice in some areas. Mild distractions
C: Well Done (70-79%) Some good progress. Needs work, but on my way. Still learning. Low distractions.
D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
E: Unable to Progress. Needs major focus, seek further options to assist.
X: Not gradable, the focus was on Enrichment, Socialisation & Engagement.
