Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Robbies first session we trained Lose Lead outside. This skill will help when walking Robbie outside and his bond with you as a owner. Robbie did so well in this session we had other dogs out side in training and he did not react once to the other dogs. Next session I would like to work on this more with him as we know there has been issues with reactivity with him. Training this at home maybe train out the back first but if he’s going really really well and you don’t feel anxious with walking them then maybe try outside on the drive way. Have him on the lead and treats in one hand if he goes to pull walk back the other way, keep doing that till he stops pulling, if he looks up at you reward with “yes” and treats make sure you always reward him when his focus is on you because that’s exactly what we want out of him. Focus: Duration A
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Robbie second session we trained roll over. This skill is just something fun for him to learn as he knows a lot of the basic skills. Robbie was training so hard with this skill and we got him to roll over 5 times so that’s a huge improvement for him. Next session I would still like to work on this with him luring his nose around until he’s fully rolled over. Training this at home is fun for you as well, lure him into a drop with the food you have in one hand lure his nose in a tight circle always rewarding him the closest he gets more rewards mean he knows that what he’s doing is exactly what we want. Focus: Repetition C+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Robbies last session we trained place but we used two different spots for place. Worked on this because he knows place really well adding something else as place gets them thinking abit. Robbie did very well in this session he knew exactly what to do. His engagement as well was fabulous with me. Next session I would still like to do this but possibly add another object we can use as place. Training this at home either get his bed and place and maybe a yoga matt or something like that. First place say “place” and once all four paws are on place reward “yes” and treats when taking him off of place say break, then send him to the other spot as place, mix it up abit because towards the end he will start knowing the pattern. Focus: Distance A
