Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Zoltan worked on his wave skill, starting with the foundations but being able to build up the amount of repetitions performed. We started just getting Zoltan to give us any kind of wave at all before rewarding him with a year but he took to this quickly today, giving us multiple repetitions each time. We were able to build the skill to where he was giving us up to 3 repetitions at a time before his reward rough him still happily working hard for his treats. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: We took Zoltan out to the paddock to start working on his loose lead walking while attempting to start some off lead walking as well. Zoltan started this lesson well, keeping by the trainers side for treats. We let him of the lead, to which he stayed by our side for a bit of time, doing repetitions and getting treats as we went. Half way through the lesson Zoltan did a runner, sprinting away from us in an attempt to get us to chase him for a bit of a game. We calmly walked towards him, not scolding him as that would reinforce him not wanting to come back to us. We rewarded him for letting us get close, heavily rewarding him for any recalls/skills he did at a distance, showing him that if he listens to us he gets even more positive things than if he runs away. This worked as he rejoined our side and continued the walk, not leaving our side again as he knew he was going to continue being rewarded while with us and hot getting what he wants if he runs away. Focus: Obedience B
Skill learnt: Exposure Comment: We did a bit of exposure for Zoltans last lesson. We put him on place in the classroom, using a tambourine to make some noise. The instrument was quite loud, being a bit of a challenge for Zoltan. Although unsure of the instrument, Zoltan stayed on place reliably. We rewarded him each time we made noise with it, as well as each time he reached over to check it out. Each time he gave it a sniff we heavily rewarded him, showing that interacting with it was a good thing. Zoltan was a lot more confident by the end of the lesson, happily letting it shake near him. Focus: Conditioning B+
