|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Oreo’s first session was place and he was very disinterested in training and treats. Given it was his first Dayschool the trainer was going to take him to the confidence course. However, once he had toileted he was ok! Back in the classroom the trainer worked with Oreo to get him in the place bed. Using treats it wasn’t long before Oreo was getting onto the place bed. Then the trainer used the released word break to get him off and then repeated the process. As the session progressed the trainer then started to work with duration. Increasing treats to help Oreo learn that he needed to stay on play regardless of the trainer movement around him. Place is a great skill to help dogs with impulse control and self settling.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Sit||Comment: Next up for Oreo was drop however, Oreo was to distracted to concentrate on a skill he is not very familiar with. The trainer decided to work on sit duration with Oreo instead. At the start of the session Oreo stood up as soon as his butt hit the ground. The trainer used the yes marker and lots of treats to help Oreo to hold position longer. By the end of the session Oreo was holding his sit longer and the trainer was starting to use the release word to get Oreo out of the sit! Awesome work Oreo.||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Last session for Oreo was paws up. Initially he was very reluctant to put his paws on the step but with a lot of encouragement and lure of treats he put two paws up!! The trainer repeated this a number of times and the changed the object to step up on. This one was slightly smaller and again took a while but he did it. Practice this at home on different things. Lure Oreo with food to put two paws up on different items.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
