Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Sampson began his day with some red light green light, using his ‘drop’ skill. Sampson would be very happy when playing and was very enthusiastic, but when the trainer asked for a drop he would not listen and instead continue to tug on his lead. With the use of his non-reward marker “ah ah” he would then slowly drop, but still not as quick as we want. Keep pushing him with this skill at home, he knows his drops and when he is not doing the right thing, he just needs practice! Give him jackpot rewards for his quicker drops and normal rewards for good drops. Focus: Distraction C+
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: Next up Sampson worked on his ‘recall’ skill outside on a long line. Sampson was such a good boy and came exactly when called in the carpark and on the concrete, but once he was on the grass, it was much more difficult for the trainer to gain his attention. He still came with a tug or 2 of encouragement, but it was not as simple as calling his name like when he was on a path. Grass is obviously a much higher distraction for him, so keep pushing him with it and be sure to give him higher rewards when he comes, so he understands this is what we want. Amazing work! Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: To finish off Sampson’s day, he worked on his ‘crate’ skill, focusing on duration. At first the trainer would just send him to and from crate, and then popped him in the crate properly. At first Sampson had his paw on the crate and wanted out, but after a few minutes he settled down into a sit, followed by a drop. Although he would switch sides, he would always go into a sit then a drop, showing he is slowly relaxing, which is awesome!! Keep up practicing this at home and be sure to reward him for his good behaviour! Great work today!! Focus: Duration X
