Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Phoenix began her day practicing her ‘drop’ skill through red light green light (play). The aim of this skill is to ask Phoenix for a controlled position while she is super razzed up and highly distracted. She did pretty well! She did not show much interest to a tug toy, squeaker or a tennis ball, but she was super interested in the flirt pole! Phoenix dropped beautifully most of the time when asked, but there were a few times the trainer would need to use “ah ah” if she was still a little too playful. Keep pushing her with this at home, it is important to get her drop skill as strong as possible! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Next up, Phoenix worked on her ‘bang’ trick, focusing on her duration of staying in the “dead” position. She did really well! There were a couple times the trainer struggled to get her onto her side, but if you fully reset her (release her and let her roam, ask for a drop then lure onto her side) she responds much better. Once in position, Phoenix remained there until released each time!! At home, work on getting her onto her side nicer, use a higher value treat if needed. Great work! Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: To finish up, Phoenix revisited her ‘drop’ skill, but this time focusing on doggo distractions. She did really well! Phoenix was able to focus and drop for the trainer even while a very excitable doggo chasing for treats was out. Keep practicing her drops at home, even if you did it around Chem (AKA her biggest distraction). Good job, Phoenix! Focus: Distraction A
