Brown Lead Skills
Here I will go through each brown lead skill and explain what it is and what the test looks like.
Now you are going to apply what you've learn (and learn a few new things too) to training another species (Horse, rat, chicken, cat, etc)
Test: Train a second species
Test: Tester throws treats at your dog, you decide which treats they can have and which they can't
Test: Demonstrate appropriate dog social skills
Starting at red lead the mechanical skills are electives that you choose with your instructor. This is your chance to show your creativity and explore areas of training that you are interested in.
This may seem similar to the last lesson, but this provides it's own challenge
Test: Down in motion
Call the dog off of a person "baby talking" at your dog with treats
Test: Human distraction
Test: Off lead following with 2 dogs
Test: Greeting a dog off lead
Test: Social Confidence
Teach your dog to go to a specific place on verbal only
Test: Discriminated send
This skill is all about understanding what your dog was bred for. All dog's were originally bred to use their instincts to help us in some way. Whether it is hunting, herding, or protecting us.
Test: Attend a working dog workshop
