|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first training session we trained lose lead outside, this skill will help when trying to take him for walks also will help with his engagement. Robbie knows this skill pretty well he would get distracted a few times but with some luring his engagement was back on the trainer. Next session I would like to work on this skill with more dogs around for more distractions. Training this skill at home, have him on lead have him walk on your left side so good the lead in your right hand a treats in the left hand closest to him, if he goes to walk ahead or pull walk back the other way, if he looks up at you while walking by your side reward with yes and treats.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session we trained emergency drops outside! This skill will help when your out and about and there is either dogs or other people coming up to your dog and you don’t want them to. Putting him in a drop then dealing with other people and dogs. Robbie did fantastic with this skill he would drop before I would even finish saying the word drop. Next session again would like to work with more distractions around such as other dogs in training and people walking past to really push his limits. Training this skill at home is as easy as having him on lead saying drop loud enough for him to hear it, make sure you have his engagement first before saying the word drop. While saying the word drop you keep on walking but he should drop no matter what, when he does reward with yes and treats.||Focus: Distraction||A+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In Robbies last session we trained Roll over, this skill is something fun to teach your dog and a skill where you have to have there engagement throughout the whole session. Because this skill is new for him he’s still learning the basics, with some simple lures and repetitive session he will get it in no time. Next session I would like to work on this skill with him so he can get 100% in it. Training this skill at home, having him on lead with the hand you have treats in lure his nose to the floor to try and get him into a drop, we don’t like to ask him to drop because then he will have to remember to drop them to roll over. Once he’s in a drop lure his nose in a tight circle enough for him to reach the treat, even the littlest bit of movement going into roll over reward with yes and treats.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
