Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In Poppy’s first session we trained lose lead outside, this skill will help when taking her out for walks. Poppy was pretty well on lose lead until she knew other dogs were on the other side of the fence, we put her into a drop to calm her down then I walked away so she couldn’t do that again. Next session I would like to work on this more as I didn’t have her attention the whole time. Training this at home is simple as having her on lead and walking back and fourth if she pulls you walk the other way and keep doing that till she stops if she looks up at you reward her with the word “yes” and treats as that’s exactly what we want. I would start in your back yard at first if you can. Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: In Poppy’s second session we trained Roll over, something fun for poppy to learn. Every time we were so close on getting her to roll over, hopefully next time we can get her too. Next time as I said I would like to work on this with her and hopefully get her to roll over this time. You don’t have to train her this if you don’t want to she’s new to it so it will take her some time. Putting her in a drop position with on hand have food in it and lure her head to the back of her and around even the slightest moves of her head reward with “yes” and treats” because she loves learning and if she doesn’t get it straight away she will lose interest. Focus: Repetition D+
Skill learnt: Play Comment: In Poppy’s third session we trained Red light green light. This teaches a dog the off switch as dogs don’t have one. We also did a passive session because she did bark at another dog as we were walking by. Poppy did well in her red light green like and when we did a passive session she was well behaved on place. Next session I think working around other dogs is a must so maybe a recall session such as around or spin would be good for her. Training this at home will help when she’s in a different environment and your wanting to get her attention. First of all try play with her get her favourite toy and play until she’s very excited once her exciter to levels are high put her into a drop then reward with the word “yes” say break and the game begins again. Focus: Repetition B+
