Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning Comment: In Vishnu first session we trained muzzle duration, practicing having the muzzle on him and teaching him to hold his head in the muzzle. Vishnu didn’t really like the muzzle at all, we kept letting him put his head in the muzzle his self and to see how long he can leave it in there for. Next session I would definitely like to work on this as this is one of his main issues, also if you could try and train this at home as well it will make it easier for you as a owner as well. Training this skill is as easy as holding the muzzle with one hand and food in the other, when he puts his nose in the muzzle reward with “yes” and treats, with the hand that you have the treats in hold it on to your other rust near the muzzle. Don’t reward if he puts his head in it and takes it back straight out we want to work on his duration, so even if he holds it for a few seconds reward for that. I would highly recommend training this at home as this will help you and us as trainers. Focus: Repetition C
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: In his next session we trained recall calling, this skill is great when wanting him to come back to you, when you call his name or say “come” he should come, and that’s what we were training. He did really well with his his engagement was incredible, I would through some food past him to get him distracted then call his name, when he’s half way walking to me I would add “come” while running back so he would have to come to me. Next session I would like to work on this more with him, because a lot of dogs don’t actually know there names. This game is as easy as throwing food past him so he has to get it that’s if he’s not distracted, once he goes to get the food call his name, if he doesn’t come to his name make some high pitch noises. If he comes to his name half way to when he’s nearly walking to you say “come” and run backwards so he has to come up to you then reward him. Focus: Distance B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In his last session we trained place with distractions, the distractions were people distractions and toy distractions. This skill is great for impulse control. Vish knows place pretty well, he did break a few times with people distractions but he didn’t take much notice of the toys. Next session I would like to work on this more with him but maybe outside or in the kennels to really push him. Training this at home is easy again use his bed as “place” maybe do this outside where you can tie him to, when wanting him on place say “place” and point to the bed, then tie him to a poll or something like that where if he goes to get off without you saying he will hopefully correct him self, and if not pull him back on to his bed and say “nah ah”. Focus: Distraction A
