Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Poppy’s session the trainer worked on her crawl trick. The trainer started by continually having the treats in front of Poppy’s nose while she was in a drop position. Then the treat was slowly moved in front of her. Poppy started off with only a small distance before she would then stand. As the session progress Poppy started crawling for a longer distance. At that point the trainer also started increasing the distance between Poppy’s nose and the treat. This is an easy skill that can be continued at home using the above methods. Focus: Repetition D+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Poppy’s second session was for roll over. The trainer found that she was not engaging enough to start so the trainer got Poppy to do some engagement activities to get her focus back. Things like spin and drops helped Poppy to focus. The trainer lured Poppy into a drop than then started to lure her to roll over. This is a hard skill to master and Poppy lost her focus as soon as Jess walked in the room!! Next time the trainer would like to see more focus from Poppy to help progress this trick. Focus: Repetition D
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Paw over the eyes was the focus for Poppy’s final session. To do this the trainer put a little bit of sticky tape on her nose. This then encouraged her to swipe her nose with her paw. As soon as Poppy did that she was rewarded with yes and a treat. You can practice this at home. However the trainer found that after a while Poppy didn’t care that the tape was on her nose!! Next time the trainer would like to see if a feather will tickle Poppy’s nose enough for her to swipe it with her paw. Focus: Repetition D
