|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Jenson began his day practicing getting comfortable and confident with vet handling procedures. The trainer placed a muzzle on him before doing so, which he did not mind at all! Once the muzzle was on, the trainer played with him and rewarded him frequently, just so it is being linked with a positive experience as well. The trainer began by slowly touching Jenson along his back and up to his head. He let her check his ears and eyes, and allowed her to move down to his paws for a check. He had plenty of play in between, even with his favourite trainer, Sinead. For the last couple minutes the trainer was able to work up to a proper vet hold for a couple seconds, which is awesome! However, when Jenson showed signs of being uncomfortable, the trainer would respect it and back off as we do not want to push him and make this experience as comfortable as possible. Great work, Jenny-boy!||Focus: Conditioning||X|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Next up, Jenson worked on his ‘recall’ skill for the first time, and he did AMAZING!! The trainer began by having Jenson in a drop in the classroom, and saying “come” while continuing to move backwards, making Jenson chase them. Once he caught up, the trainer lured him into a sit and rewarded him. This was repeated throughout the whole session. By the end of it, Jenson was able to run freely (still had a lead on, trainer just was not holding it) and sit by the trainers feet once called. Keep practicing this skill at home and try outside on a lead for just that extra distraction level. Awesome job!||Focus: Foundation||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: To finish up, Jenson learnt the new trick of ‘roll over’. He did so well! He had so much energy and focus, it was amazing! He happily followed a lure from a drop, onto his side, then back, and back to his tummy. Jenson was only really able to do his rollover on his left side, he is a little more unco for his right side, haha! Keep practicing this at home and begin to fade the lure some more and we can then add in the verbal cue. Such good work today, Jenny!||Focus: Foundation||B+|
