Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: First session Remi started learning place. This skill is great at helping build self settling skills, impulse control and can be used to redirect unwanted behaviours. The only rule of place is all four paws remain on the bed until given the release word “break”. Remi is still in early stages of this skill and initially she was a bit hesitant of the bed but by the end of the session she was happily putting all for paws on the bed and we were gradually increasing the duration a few seconds at a time. She still isn’t at the stage of introducing the verbal cue but with more practise at home you can begin adding the verbal cue. Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Remis second session we worked on her drop skill. Remi shows some prior knowledge of this skill but still requires a lure to help get her into position. Today we focused on lots of repetition to start fading out the lure as well as building duration. She is a quick learner and progressing well in this skill. Keep focusing on her duration before adding distractions. Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: Final skill Remi worked on some recall. We started off in the classroom where she did quite well, engaging with the trainer, coming when called and for the most part finishing in a sit position. We moved outside the classroom to work on the walkway for some extra distractions. This was a bit more of a challenge so we used treats to lure her to help keep her on track and set her up from success. She was even able to recall away from a trainer walking her way. Keep working on this around medium level distractions. Focus: Distraction B
