Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Heras first session we worked on her drop skill in the cattery. This skill is good as it puts them in a controlled position around distractions. Hera started off the session well however her concentration decreased as the session went on. At times Hera wouldn’t drop and if this occurred she was told ‘uh uh’ and put into her drop. After she was told ‘uh uh’ and put into her drop she was released and asked to drop again straight away. This teaches Hera that if she doesn’t drop when asked she doesn’t get rewarded however will still be put into her drop. For Heras next step she needs to continue working on her drops around moderate distractions as she is only doing them 50% of the time. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning Comment: For Heras second session we worked on her muzzle conditioning. This is to help her feel more comfortable wearing a muzzle. Hera started off really well and was offering her head into the muzzle. As the session went on we were able to get her to hold her mouth in the muzzle for 10 seconds. Hera struggled abit more when we started to move the strap and started to pull her head away. The next step for Hera will be to continue working on getting her use to putting the strap on. Focus: Conditioning B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Heras last session we worked on her skateboard skill. This skill is good for concentration and confidence. Hera did really well with her skateboard skill and was so excited throughout the session. As she was so excited she kept flipping the skateboard when she jumped into it. To help her slow down abit the trainer held the skateboard for her and once she was on it slowly lured her into moving. Hera eventually settled down and was able to ride the skateboard a distance of 1m! The next step for Hera will be to continue working on her distance! Focus: Confidence A+
