Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Baby Freya started off her day with her favourite skill, ‘skateboard’. As soon as the trainer brought it out, she put a paw on right away, which is fantastic! The trainer then spent the time working on her duration on the board (how long she can push herself for). Freya’s is excellent in pushing herself with 1 paw on the board, so the trainer tried to get her to have 2 paws on the board and push. Freya was a little confused and would often go back to 1 paw, so the remainder of the session was spent just having her hold 2 paws on the board with no movement. Her future sessions will consist of adding slow movement and then we can work our way up to 3 paws!! Awesome work! Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Next up, Freya worked on her ‘chin rest’ skill. Baby Frey’s eyes were a little goopy, but again she was hesitant on letting us hold her face, let alone go near her eyes. So the trainer worked on luring her chin i to the palm of their hand with the use of treats, and she responded very well! Once Freya got the hang of that, duration was the main focus. The trainer achieved this by having a handful of treats and having her rest her chin until the treats were all eaten and she was released. Keep on practicing this at home! Focus: Conditioning C+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Freya’s last session she did ‘roll over’. Freya did not seem to show much recognition of this skill, so the trainer started slow and used a lure the whole time. The trainer began with luring her into a drop, the moving the treat to her should so she would relax onto one side. The trainer progressed to move the treat over her shoulder and Freya would follow, lying onto her back and eventually flopping onto the other side. She performed a few good roll overs, which is awesome!! There were a few times she would freak out and jump up, bit with persistence, patience and encouragement, she did really well!! Keep up practicing at home, in the future we want to start fading the lure! Focus: Foundation B+
