Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In his first session today we trained the skill place, now he seems to know this skill well we focused on sending him to place from a distance and used a few balls as distractions. We also had another dog and trainer in as well which was a great distraction for him. He did extremely well. Utilise this skill if men come over train this skill around them, he is great at this skill so use it to your advantage. Focus: Distance A
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In his second session we trained drops with duration. We go by something called applied duration not wait or stay, so pretty much they have to stay in the position until we release them which we day ‘break’ and they can come out of the position. He did do to bad I know he knows his drops now it’s just practicing his duration in the drop, so with this we kept rewarding him then release him and continue on that. After awhile I started to slow down my treats which help with duration. Something you can practice on at home. Drop is a great controlled position so if your walking, put him in a drop with food on lead so if he goes to get up he will correct his self. Focus: Duration B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Zeke’s last session we trained Loose lead walking. Now dogs do not know how to walk nicely on a lead so we have to teach them. This skill is basically walking back and forth until he stops pulling if he pulls one way go the other, because if you let him get to want he wants he’s going to keep doing it. He progressed really well half way through the session he stopped pulling also he would look up at me every now and then and that’s when we reward him because he’s focusing on you and not what is going on around him. So practicing this skill around low distractions first like inside then go to the backyard, but if he doesn’t walk nicely on lead inside he won’t outside. Baby steps. Focus: Repetition B
