Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Vishnu In Vishnu first session we trained “place” because he does know place pretty well we had two spots we called “place” because working with one “place” he was just guessing so adding another “place” would trick his brain. Vishnu is a smart dog and with training him “place” he was incredible, helps that he is good motivated as well, because we did have distractions around him such as other dogs and other people, and all he wanted was the food. Next session I might had a few toy distractions to see where his limits are and if he will “break” from place at all. Training “place” at home is a perfect way to get your dog to clam while you have people over, because he knows “place” very well having other people over while he’s only place is a good distraction. Focus: Distraction A+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In Vishnu second session we trained “Emergency Drop” this skill his good for there listening skills. With training this skill what we do is put them in a drop, drop the lead walk a few steps away then if they don’t break out of the “drop” then we reward them. Again all Vishnu wanted was the food so his engagement was spot on even with other distractions going on in the room. He did not once break from his drop even with me not holding the lead. Next session going to see if I can push his limits with a few toy distractions around him and see what happens. Training this at home will help if your ever walking your dog and don’t want Vishnu to go up to a certain dog. Because he knows his drops well he should have a problem but saying “drop” then rewarding him if he doesn’t break if he does break from his “drop” make him go back into it as he does know better. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Spin Comment: Vishnu last session we trained “spin” something fun to end his training with. Again he’s very good motivated so he would do anything you’d ask him to. Vishnu took some time learning “spin” towards his left he would get confused and just sit, that’s his way of trying to work out what we’re asking from him. Towards the end of this session he knew exactly what to do. Also training this I was training him to be gentle when taking food from my hands because he was snatching it out. Next session I will work on this with him and also teaching him how to be gentle. Training this at home is just abit of fun I would highly recommend training him how to be gentle with taking food from other peoples hands, teaching this is easy putting food in one hand holding it in a visit only give the food to him is he licks your hand or is he just sits and wait it did take him some time but towards the end he was doing it. Focus: Repetition C+
