Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Rosie worked on her distance today, being sent to place on the long line while in the classroom. Rosie did well going on the bed but once we stepped backwards; she would hop off every now and then. We practiced slowly moving back a couple steps at a time until she was happily staying on the bed up to us being around 10 meters away. One she was consistently staying on the bed, we started sending her to her bed from further and further away, with Rosie being able to be sent to the bed from a longer distance as the lesson went on. Focus: Distance B
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: Rosie kept trying to barge her way out of the crate as we went to start this lesson so we worked on doing some manners while in the crate. We practiced making Rosie wait until her release word until we let her out, making her wait longer if she tries to run out earlier. Once out the crate we used a treat to get her to walk herself in, using the verbal crate and paying her when she was inside. Rosie wanted to quickly run out every time we opened the door but as we practiced she started happily waiting for us to give her the release word. Focus: Manners C+
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: We finished our day by introducing Rosie to her paws up skill. This skill is where we get Rosie to put her front 2 paws up on an object. We practiced with a step, luring her up with a treat. Once she put her paw on we mark yes and give her a treat. Rosie was a bit confused about what we wanted her to do at first but as she started putting her paws up on the step trying to get the treat, she quickly realised what we were asking her to do. She quickly started to follow the treat up onto the step so we worked on fading or the lure, using a point and the verbal "paws up". We ended the lesson with Rosie happily putting her paws on the step with just a point almost every time Focus: Foundation C+
