|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her first and second session, Cookie focused on further developing her skill 'handstand' with repetitions within the classroom. Cookie performed very well, she is beginning to anticipates the 'handstand ' and looks for the object. Today the trainer used a new object (wooden board with grip) to work on increasing the angle of the object while Cookie continued to perform. Cookie performed very well, the trainer went back to basics and lured her when the angle increased. This lure was quickly faded to the hand signal and verbal cue 'back up'. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home, if you would like to borrow the wooden board, I will leave it by the office.||Focus: Foundation||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her final session, Cookie focused on further developing her skill 'achoo' working on carrying the tissue to the bucket. Cookie performed very well, she initially struggled with where to take the tissue, but with some guidance she quickly began to drop it in the bucket. The trainer did notice the cloth material can get stuck to her teeth, so she is unable to drop it into the bucket. Great job progressing with this skill, keep practicing at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
