Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Opal made her way outside the classroom working on chaining together her obedience skills place and drop. Opal’s loose lead on the way over lacked engagement so we put a little bit of time into getting her walking by our side. One she was engaged we started going over our skills together. Opal was quick to go on place when asked but stepped off before her release a few times. We did some quick repetitions to get her back in the swing of training. Opal quickly started to follow the boundaries of the skill, completing the skill easily. We then added in some drops, getting her to go straight from once skill to the other. At this point, Opal was happy to follow her trainer, completing her skills consistently. Focus: Obedience B
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: Opal revisited her middles skill, focusing on completing the skill quickly with no lure. Opal waited for the lure to complete the skill as we started the lesson but we quickly worked on phasing it out, staying by guiding her through our legs very gently dog the lead if she plopped down into a sit instead of going into the skill. After some repetition with this method, Opal quickly started going through with just a point and the verbal "middles", completing the skill until the end of the lesson. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Opal finished going back over her roll over skill. Opal was a little confused at first, not sure what we were asking if her. We used a treat to lure her around, paying her for each little movement towards a roll over. As we did this, Opal made her way over more and more. As we got to the end of the lesson we were able to lure her over onto her side. Focus: Repetition C
