Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: In Ruby’s first session we trained “lose lead” Ruby was amazing in this session she didn’t pull once or got distracted her focus was on me the whole time. Ruby is such a sweet heart like I said there’s not one bad thing to say about Ruby in this session. Next time we would like to see if we can add more distractions around her, we did have one dog on “place” in the classroom and 4 other dogs in the crates but they didn’t seem to worry her at all. Training this at home maybe start of at home when ever she looks at you reward her then I would see if you can do it at a dog park or down the beach, again if she pulls just walk back the other way with her. Focus: Distraction A+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In Ruby’s second session we trained “place” with distractions. Again she was amazing on place she did broke from “place” once but she did correct her self, as she was on place I was training another dog and it didn’t bother her at all. Place is always a clam spot for dogs so seeing her lay down on “place” was exactly what I wanted especially when I was training another dog. Next time I would like to add more distractions as a few balls then as the session progresses add more to see if she will “break” when we do that we will see where her boundaries are at and work around that. Training this at home would be perfect if you have people over, leaving her on “place”, if you can tie her somewhere while she’s on place then if she does go to break herself she will correct her self. Focus: Distraction A+
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: Ruby’s last session we trained “crate training” because we did struggle to get her in the crate. Ruby was so close on going all the way into the crate it took a lot of time but she was so close, she would half go in then come back out again, with a little bit of pressure on her lead and luring her nose to the crate. Ruby will learn in her next session that the crate is a safe and clam place for her to relax. In her next session I would like to see if we can get her all the way in. I know she can do it, just takes time and patience. Training this at home may be hard as not a lot of people don’t have a crate, but if you do try luring her nose to the crate with food slowly getting closer to that crate. Apply a little pressure on her lead as well will help you. Focus: Repetition C-
