Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: For her first session today we worked on her loose lead and drops in the classroom with Maverick present. She did really well with him as a distraction, we walked them up and down the classroom and did drops randomly (while one walks past). If they got too close they would get a bit excited but for the most part Lady had awesome focus and engagement with the trainer. Having them train together in the same room helps teach them that they don’t always have to play and get excited around each other. Having them settled and training on different things is a great way for them to acknowledge each other but not interact. They did really well training together. Focus: Conditioning B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For her second session today we worked on her rollover skill, again with Maverick training at the same time. She was really focused on the trainer and didn’t seem bothered by Mav’s presence. Her rollover skill has shown some great progress as well. We were able to lure her into a drop and then all the way over. We tested if she could go both ways and she smashed that! To move further with this skill we started making the hand signal smaller and smaller and introduced the word command of rollover. She is doing so well with this skill! Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For her last session today we worked on her loose lead walking in the cattery and spins. Since it was so warm outside we worked with all the cat distractions in the cattery, she did pretty good with this skill by not pulling but she struggled a little with engagement. We were able to work through this by rewarding anytime she did look to the trainer, eventually she got better and started to focus more on the task. Her spins were a piece of cake, she did really well in the classroom so we incorporated them into her loose lead walking to keep things interesting! To work on this further it just needs practice in different environments and eventually with Maverick by her side! Focus: Distraction B
