|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Squid In squids first session we trained place, first it was just getting him to settle as he was excited. Squid knows place well it’s just getting him to calm while other people are walking in and out of the training shed and other dogs. Next session I would like to work on this with duration and distance. Training this at home is a great way to get him to settle, have his bed in front while your watching TV get him to stay on place while your show is on and when there is add say “break” to release him and reward him with food.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In Squids second session we trained Drop with distance. Teaching this helps his listening skills well and let him to clam. Squid does knows his drops well adding distance with the skill tests his boundaries. Next session I would like to work on this and see if we can not let him break from the drop position. Training this at home is easy holding the lead in one hand and food in the other, say “drop” give him a few seconds to drop as he is a large dog once he’s in drop reward him with food and the word “yes”, take one step back then reward and keep going, I pushed him abit by walking around him if he didn’t get up I’d reward if he did I would say “nah ah” and pull his led down till he’s in drop.||Focus: Duration||A|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Squids last session we trained paw, he does know paw just getting his concentration on me was the hard part. Once he was doing paw I got him to try and put paw on a box he was unsure at first but towards the end he did it. Squid is a smart boy he just likes to push your boundaries, a lot of patience with him is key. Next session I would like to work on this, just something fun to end the day with. Training this at home start with getting his paw yourself then see if he will put it on your leg or on a box.||Focus: Repetition||C|
