Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: First session for Quinn was place. This skill enables Quinn to have a spot in the house where she can relax and helps when visitors come to the house. Quinn was quite distracted for her first session and it took a little bit to get her focus, the trainer did this by upping the yes marker with treats. Once she was better engaged the trainer was able to incorporate trainer movement as distraction. As Quinn is a sucker for cuddles, resisting the urge to follow the trainer off place was hard for Quinn at first. However once again upping the treats when the trainer moved helped Quinn learn to stay on place and the trainer was then able to reduce the treats again. Practice this at home with low distractions to start with. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: Second session for Quinn was paws up. Quinn feels uncertain and nervous in some situations. Paws up is putting two paws up on different objects and is a fantastic confidence skill. On the bigger items Quinn did a great job but the smaller ones she did struggle. At home practice using a food lure near Quinn’s nose to lead her onto different things. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Last up for Quinn was drop in the classroom. At first she wasn’t dropping and the trainer had to lure Quinn to the ground. After a little bit the trainer although still using a food lure no longer needed to be so slow or precise as Quinn started to remember her drop skill. The trainer did a few repetitions and then another dog started training and Quinn got quite distracted. The trainer then worked on duration to help Quinn hold position regardless of the distractions. This will help when out walking Quinn as this helps get her focus back on you. Focus: Duration C
