Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In Rolos first session we trained lose lead we did start out side but he got to distracted so went to the classroom he was distracted at first but towards the end his engagement with me was spot on. Rolo did incredible in this session, his engagement with me as a trainer was spot on. Next session I would like to try this outside if he gets to distracted might go back into the classroom. Training this at home will help when taking him for a walk, this is a simple skill while walking you want to make sure he’s next to you walking if he’s not and pulling turn around the other way and keep doing that till he stops pulling, if he looks up at you reward for that because that’s exactly what we want from him. Rolos second session we trained emergency drops, this skill will help once again going for a walk if a person or there dog comes up to you, putting him in a controlled position while you walk off and deal with another dog or person. He got abit distracted at first and was pushing my limits but towards the end he got it and he knew what had to be done. Next session I would like to work on this with him more so he’s perfect when walking out side. Training this at home is easy while your walking getting him in a drop, and keep walking if he drops reward him with the word “yes” and food if he doesn’t drop when you say correct him saying “nah ah” and tug his lead to the floor. Focus: Duration A
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Rolos second session we trained emergency drops, this skill will help once again going for a walk if a person or there dog comes up to you, putting him in a controlled position while you walk off and deal with another dog or person. He got abit distracted at first and was pushing my limits but towards the end he got it and he knew what had to be done. Next session I would like to work on this with him more so he’s perfect when walking out side. Training this at home is easy while your walking getting him in a drop, and keep walking if he drops reward him with the word “yes” and food if he doesn’t drop when you say correct him saying “nah ah” and tug his lead to the floor. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Spin Comment: Rolos last session we trained spin, this is a good recall skill for him, this helps with engagement on you and getting his focused skill on you no matter the distractions around him. he knew spin pretty well so we tried it while on lose lead and he was incredible we did spin both ways so he got used of going both ways not just one way. Next session I would like to try this again maybe with less luring to see if he remembers. Training this at home is as easy has having some food in one hand and that same hand luring his nose around until he’s back facing you reward with “yes” and food, if he’s good at that then do it while walking like I did. Focus: Duration A
