Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Kimchi’s first session we worked on her roll over skill. This skill helps to build confidence and pushes their thinking. To begin with a lure was used as Kimchi wasn’t rolling over. After a few repetitions we faded out the lure to only a hand signal and Kimchi didn’t take long to pick it up. Kimchi often knew what to do however at times would get stuck on her back and not be able to make the full roll over. Therefore, the next step for kimchi will be to continue working on her roll over while fading the lure out. Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: For Kimchi’s second session we worked on her middle’s skills. This skill is good as it allows them to focus on a task. To improve Kimchi’s middles skill, we started to incorporate walking backwards while she was in middles. Kimchi was slightly nervous walking backwards between the trainers’ legs to begin with, so we worked on her confidence with walking backwards while the trainer stayed still. Kimchi grew some confidence in walking backwards from the middles position by the end of the session however will still need to continue with this for her next step. Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Kimchi’s last session we worked on her sit pretty skill. This skill helps to increase muscle mass and balance. Kimchi is doing well with this skill and is now up to fading out the lure. While kimchi started off really well and didn’t need a food lure, she got tired pretty quickly and stopped performing sit pretty unless a food lure was involved. The next step for Kimchi will be to continue fading out the food lure. Focus: Repetition B+

We recommend your next step should be…
