Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Pickle began his day practicing his ‘skateboard’ skill. The main focus was for Pickle to wait until he was told to “ride it” before stepping onto the board. He would try and ride the board before asked when he was meant to be in a sit. With the use of his non-reward marker though, he realised what he did was wrong, but he would give a good “awoo” before doing the right thing. Pickle is able to ride the board every time without fail and looks elegant while doing it. Focus: Duration A
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Next up, Pickle worked on his ‘bubbles’ skill, focusing on duration. He was more than happy to blow bubbles on command after placing a treat in the water to start him off. During the session he was growing frustrated and would not even blow bubbles for longer than a second, but with patience and his non-reward marker, he took the hint and would attempt it again for longer. We want Pickle to keep progressing with this so he is able to blow bubbles for longer. Focus: Duration A
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: To finish up, Pickle practiced his ‘drop’, ‘sit’ and ‘middles’ skill. Pickle did very well and listened carefully for each skill, although he was very noisy during this last session. The only thing Pickle lacked in at first was remaining in the middles skill, the first few times he kept running straight through the trainers legs without stopping, but with the use of a treat, the trainer was able to get him to stop and sit in between their legs, then release him. Since Pickle did so well, higher distractions is something that can be added in the future. Focus: Obedience A
