Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In her first session, Maggie focused on further developing her skill place within the classroom, building her duration and distance. Maggie performed well, she responds to the place command well, walking onto the bed. Once on the bed, she can struggle to hold duration. However, with some guidance, she began to maintain it well. As she was performing so well the trainer challenged her with creating distance (moving away from her while she holds this skill. Maggie performed very well, she maintained her place skill well despite the added challenge. Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Crate Training Comment: In her second session, Maggie focused on building confidence within the classroom and crates. We focused on this skill to build her confidence by walking in and out of a crate to help her settle and relax during her rest time. Maggie was initially hesitant to walk into the crate, but with some guidance, patients and treats she slowly began to follow the lure into the crate. As the session progressed and her confidence grew the lure was faded as she continued to perform well. By the end of this session, she was walking into the crate only following one piece of food. Focus: Confidence B
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: In her final session, Maggie focused on building her confidence with the new skill paws up. Maggie began learning this skill on a large wobble board, she initially was hesitant to interact with the wobble board but with some treats, she began to place one paw onto it, then two. Soon enough she was walking on and off like a pro. As she was performing so well the trainer challenged her to practise this skill with different objects around the classroom, including chairs, stalls, couches, etc. Maggie continued to perform well and interact with each item. Focus: Foundation B+
