Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his first session we went over Robbie's quoits skill. He did struggle a bit with this today - it took some time just to get him interacting with it and he would initially only nibble at the ring. As the session progressed he did start to open his mouth more for it (we were doing jackpot rewards for this over the nibbling) but didn't quite get to holding onto it or biting onto the object. To make it easier we did take a step back to work on just the hold skill with a small rope. By using it almost as a tug toy we were able to increase the frequency of him opening and going to grab on it but still no attempt to hold. At home work on conditioning him to holding onto objects with jackpot rewards for biting down on them. Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his second session we revisited his loose lead skill as he was a bit cheeky with it outside coming from the kennels. We started off with a refresher in the classroom which he did fine with (including with his emergency drops which he did good with though could be tidied a bit (bit slow or not going into a complete drop). Outside he did pull a bit ahead so we worked on bringing him more in line with the trainer by turning around each time he pulled ahead which did the trick. We also practiced a few recalls - he did really well with this and loved racing back to the trainer. Practice his loose lead in different environments to help when he gets distracted and pulls ahead. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his last session we did some fun confidence building by having Robbie go through a hoop. He needed a heavy lure the first few times but as he got more excitable with it he was able to follow a lure quickly through the hoop, even when raised a bit off the ground. He had a lot of fun with this skill - keep using a variety of trick skills to keep building up his confidence. Focus: Confidence B
