Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Sit Comment: For her first session today the trainer is wanted to focus on her sit skill especially around other dogs and outside where it’s nice and distracting! The trainer took her around the property and had her home sits around a few different distractions including people, other dogs, the mechanics next door making big loud noises and even the sprinkler going off! Sandy was amazing with this, the few times she did break off her sit she was able to be redirected straight back into the skills with ease, something that did make her break that the trainer is going to work on in her next sit session is moving away and towards her while she is in a sit with high speed, this isn’t something that’s super necessary but it helps proof her in situations she may find herself in during a public walk like a dog rushing her while she is in her sit or drop. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For her second session the trainer worked on her place skill! This is one of the fundamental basic obedience skills and is very useful for keeping her in a safe space where you know she isn’t going to move unless told otherwise! The session today was focused on sending her to multiple place beds to really test her recognition or the skill. To also add to the challenge she was worked outside today for some extra smell and sound distractions! At first she was a little over whelmed with all the extra smells and sounds outside, however she was extremely quick to recover today very quickly following the trainers queues, the set her up for success the trainer set up the beds in almost a circle like route so taking her on and off them was easier for her as when she left one bed the other was right there on her route for her to just jump on to! Setting out dogs up for success like this will make progress faster with her training! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For her final session today the trainer worked on the new trick she is learning for Festive Fido month which is limbo! Not only is it a great trick to learn it also helps teach her to crawl at the same time! She did so well today, last session she was following multiple lures under the bar and very slowly moving through, however today as the session went on the trainer slowly decreased the amount of lures they were using and put the lures further away from where Sandy had to go under, forcing her to move all the way under the pole to get the treats, where as last session she had a trail of treats and was slowly moving through. She made some good progress today and by the end of the session the trainer was able to start introducing the verbal but only just starting to, this is still such a good way to finish her day on such a positive note! Focus: Foundation C+
