Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For this session we continued work on Tycho's leg weaving. He has good foundations in this skill and can follow a hand signal between the legs without a lure. We spent this session getting him to do 3 leg weaves in a row before getting a treat which, while initially frustrating for him, he picked up very quickly. The next steps for this skill would be labelling this skill and being able to chain a few leg weaves together under the one gesture/command which we would like to see from next time. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his second session we did something fun for Tycho by continuing his skateboarding skill. Tycho is fantastic at putting his front paws on it and doesn't get concerned when it moves. He is still learning to use his back legs to propel the skateboard so that was the focus of this session. He did use his back legs several times over the session but often moved the skateboard too fast and lost control 😂. Teaching him to slow down and focus was tricky but he did start showing improvement by the end of the session. Focus: Repetition A
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his final session Tycho worked on some basics with loose lead and place to help his Aunty Nay with videos. He was very good at his place but did get a bit distracted sniffing grass outside during his loose lead. Focus: Distraction B
