Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Pyro made his way in to the classroom to work on his place skill. Pyro was quite distracted by the new environment and all the other dogs working in the room. We used a treat to lure him up onto the bed before marking yes and giving him the treat. Pyros engagement with treats wavered a bit as he got distracted so we used a game of tug to get his focus back. We would get him to go onto place before releasing him with a quick game before repeating. Pyro started to hop on the bed more consistently at this point, finishing the lesson with him focusing on the task. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: Pyro came to the classroom to work on his drop skill. We tried to lure Pyro down into the skill but he was too distracted, not showing any interest in his treats. We tried some engagement games but he was still not engaging. We shifted to some recall with Pyro to give him a more interesting task. We ran backwards while adding in the "come" verbal to encourage Pyro to chase us, before marking yes as he makes his way back to us and giving him a treat. This got his attention as he followed all the way back to his trainer most of the time. He still got distracted but it didn't take long for him to recover and make his way back again. Focus: Foundation C
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Pyro finished his day with his loose lead skill. We pick two points in the room and walk him in between them. When pyro pulls ahead we turn around and walk the opposite way. As he makes his way back to us we mark yes and give him a treat. As we added in repetition, Pyro started staying next to us as we walked. Pyro would lose his focus every now and then but as the lesson went on he started to engage with his trainer for longer each time. He finished the lesson strong, staying right next to us as we walked. Focus: Foundation B
