Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Teddys first session we worked on his drop skill. This is a useful skill to put Teddy in a control position around distractions. To begin with we started with drops in the classroom and Teddy was doing well. As he was doing well we started to progress to just outside the classroom. Teddy struggled a bit more outside as there were more distractions. If Teddy didn’t drop he was told ‘uh uh’ and put into his drop. After he was put into his drop he was released straight away and asked to drop again. This teaches Teddy that if he doesn’t drop when asked he will still be put into a drop however he won’t be rewarded after being in it. When Teddy did drop he was told ‘yes’ and rewarded. The next step for Teddy will be to continue working on his drops outside. Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Teddys second session we worked on his drop skill again however we focused on duration. For this session we spent it outside with people distractions. Teddy did really well however at times he would break. When Teddy did break his drop before being released he was told ‘uh uh’ and put back into drop. The next step for Teddy will be to continue working on his drop duration around high distractions. Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For Teddys last session we worked on his loose lead. This is good for walking without pulling. For this session we worked outside to push Teddy around distractions. He did really well walking by the trainers side however he wasn’t paying much attention to the trainer as when she turned he continued walking. To help increase Teddys engagement the trainer started to exaggerate her steps so Teddy would see her turn. Once she started going this Teddy started to turn when she did. If Teddy turned straight away he was rewarded however if he was slow to turn the trainer didn’t reward him but instead started to jingle the lead so he would pick up the pace and regain focus. The next step for Teddy will be to continue working on his loose lead outside. Focus: Distraction B
