Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his first session today the trainer wanted to start of with some physical and fun just to get Jack in the right mood for the rest of his sessions. The trainer took Jack to the classroom and started to work on some hoop jump! This is as simple as luring him through a hoop, since he hasn’t done much of this the trainer started with the hoop rather low to the floor having him just step through, he did really well picking this up quickly today so the frisbee decided to try something else! For this months theme the trainers have been doing some trick training and desensitisation and the trainer thought they would introduce Jack to some bubbles while he was doing so well with this new skill! The machine was turned on and Jack couldn’t care what do ever, this is probably due to the fact the trainer was working Jack and not allowing him to hyper fixate on the bubbles allowing him to form a positive relationship between the bubbles and doing some training! Focus: Desensitisation C+
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: For his second session the trainer worked on getting Jack to “hold” the hose piece. He was doing really well with this last time he was in last week so the trainer was very confident in continuing him from the same point he was at last session. Today the focus was on keeping the object inside his mouth until given his release command, if we can pair dropping it to his release he should hold the object indefinitely or until it becomes uncomfortable for him. Today the trainer thinks they made some good progress towards this, during the session today he was only rewarded when he held it in his mouth and was given the release to be rewarded, he slowly started pairing these together and while he doesn’t have full recognition yet he is well on his way to get there! Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building) Comment: For his final session today the trainer worked on building his confidence on the confidence course! He has gotten the hang of every piece of the course besides the swinging bridge and the see-saw so these were focused on today! While the see-saw was still a little too much for him the trainer was able to get him across the bridge today! Using Fritz as the lure they were able to get him to at first get his paws up on to the bridge before rushing him across with the lure not giving him enough time to think about it! While he only did it twice this was a big step for Jack and a fantastic way to finish the day! Focus: Confidence C+
