Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In puppy’s first session today we conditioned him to our reward marker which is ‘yes’ then give him a treat we did that for a few minutes then we progressed to place skill. He was very unsure of the object which is a raised bed, with lots of treats and luring he eventually would get on with four paws and not get of straight away. Practice this skill at home will help with his confidence and her progress. Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Puppy’s second session we trained drops. It was great to see he knows this skill so we focused on his duration in the drop. This requires lots of rewards markers and treats. Only keeping him in the position for a short amount of time, and when releasing him we would say break and through some food on the floor for him to grab. She progressed well towards the end of his session. Practicing this skill at home say drop, once his bum hits the floor reward with ‘yes’ and treats then repeat the yes a few times then break him, not leaving it to long in between reward markers to help her duration. Then when wanting to release him say break. Focus: Duration B
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: Puppy’s last session we trained paws up. Paws up is a great confidence skill, helps them bring confidence on putting there paws on anything. At first he was a bit unsure but didn’t take long for him to put two front paws on the object, first we used a step up then we used something smaller. He did really well. Focus: Distraction A+
