Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: We took Rosie outside to continue working on this skill. We worked with two beds, sending her between each before rewarding her with a treat. We continued adding in more repetitions each time, sending Rosie from bed to bed up to 5 times before rewarding her with a treat to help reinforce the skill. Rosie happily went from bed to bed, although stepping off before her release a few times, needing a quick reminder. As the lesson on, her duration got stronger as she waited either for her release word, or to be sent to the other place bed. Focus: Obedience B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: We created a gauntlet of toys for Rosie to walk through, focusing on keeping her engagement on the trainer as we walked. Rosie was distracted at first, wanting to go investigate the toys as we walked nearby them. After a bit of resorption, Rosie was walking by them looking at her trainer so we started walking over the top of them to further test her. Once b she was walking nicely over the top of them we added in some food as well. This was very challenging for Rosie, but after some repetition she started to ignore the treats as we made our way through Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: We played some Red light green light, using her Drops to help her settle. We played a game of tug with her; get her as excited as possible before redirecting her into a drop, waiting for her to settle herself down. Once settled we start the game again. This helps teach Rosie to be able to calm herself down when over aroused. At first, Rosie didn't want to go into the drop but after some repetition, she was happily waiting in her drop until her release word. At this point, we started adding in her "out" verbal, teaching her to drop the toy. Focus: Distraction B
