|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Remi In Remis first session we trained Lose Lead, this skill will help his engagement with you with all the distractions going on around him and when walking him helping him walk comfortably next to you. Remi needs a lot of work with Lose lead especially because he is a bigger dog, he was distracted for most of his session but with more practice he will start progressing. Next session I definitely think this needs work on the most. Training this at home will be important with helping you when walking him out side and with the different distractions, do this inside to start or in your back yard, have him on lead and have treats in the other hand closer to him. If he goes to pull walk the other way and if he pulls again just keep walking back and forth, as soon as he looks up at you reward with “yes” and treats, everytime he looks up at you reward because his focus is on you and that’s exactly what we want when walking him||Focus: Repetition||D+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: In Remi’s second session we trained paws up on an object. We used a tub and put it upside down. This skill will help with his confidence and his engagement. Remi did pretty well with this skill he was still getting abit distracted but with some lures of the nose he would regain his focus. He knows paws up pretty well. In his next session I would like to work on this skill but maybe with a skateboard as he knows this skill pretty well. Training this skill at home is something fun for you and him to do together. Have something he can put his paw on we used a tub and flipped it upside down, tap on the object and say “paw” if he does it reward with “yes” and treats, if he leaves his paw on it make sure you give him lots of treats for that.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his last session we trained his drops with distance. This skill is great for when needing him to listen and for his engagement. Remi did pretty well with this skill he there were a few times he didn’t listen but with me saying “nah ah” and the foot break he eventually did it. But the distance didn’t both him and he only broke once. Next session I would like to work on this more with him for him to listen straight away. Training this skill at home is as easy as having him on the lead when you get his attention say “drop” loudly so you know they have heard it you can use hand signal as well when saying it but he knows the word pretty well, once he drops reward with “yes” and treats, with the distance I would take a step back reward and keep taking step backs and rewarding, then I would push his limits abit and walk around him to see if he would break from his drop.||Focus: Distance||A|
