|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Jenson started off his day practicing his ‘paws up’ skill, focusing on gaining confidence on the wobble board. He did really well!! Jenson could get his front 2 paws on there with ease, but the challenge was coaxing him to get all 4 paws on there and learn to balance. By the end of the session Jenny-boy was smashing it and was able to sit on there for a few seconds, building both confidence and balance. Keep practicing this skill with him at home and utilise any household objects that are a bit obscure!||Focus: Confidence||A|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: Next up, Jenson worked on his ‘spin’ skill, focusing on the foundation. As Jenson is head shy, the trainer took it very slow and began just getting him used to the new hand placement as her forearm semi went over his head. Once comfortable, she began luring him in a circle. At first he would freak out, but once calm he was always eager to come back and figure out what was being asked of him. After a few reps, Jenson did a spin!! From then on it was a bit of a hit or miss if he would follow the lure, but the trainer found the closer to his nose it was, the better he would perform. Take a look at our IG story and keep practicing this at home!||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: To end the day, Jenson worked on ‘muzzle conditioning’. He did amazing as per usual and place his nose in there when presented with it. He also remained there while the trained clasped it around his head and was able to perform skills while in the muzzle too! Keep up the amazing work with his muzzle at home so it remains strong and positive for him!||Focus: Conditioning||A|
