|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Today Cookie began with her ‘skateboard’ skill, and she was wonderful! As soon as the board was brought out, Cookie was on it! She did excellently in following the lure onto the board, and whilst moving it. During this session Cookie was able to skate across half the classroom, but there were a few moments where she would hop off the board if she thought the lure was too far away from her. In the future we want to gradually fade out the lure so she is able to skate all by herself and gain more confidence while doing so!||Focus: Confidence||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Cookie’s next session, we did some of her ‘loose lead’ skill in the cattery, where there were many of those cats Cookie gets excitable over! She did very well, and although she was a bit excited about being in the presence of them at the beginning, she would almost instantly regain her focus back once she had a quick look at what they were doing. Very good Cookie! We want Cookie to keep up the great work with this, so that in the future she will stay calm all throughout, not needing the first few minutes to adjust.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Lastly, Cookie revisited her ‘orbit’ skill. As it has been a while since Cookie last did this skill, we started off luring her around our legs, but slowly beginning to fade the lure again. Cookie did extremely well, and did not get distracted by the other dogs or trainers in the room, which is fantastic! She gave her full attention and performed the skill with so much ease. We want Cookie to keep progressing with this skill so in the future she can perform it with just the verbal cue.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
