Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Mojos first session we worked on his roll over skill. This skill is good for building confidence and pushing their thinking. Mojo did really well through his session and progressed to only using a hand lure! To begin we used a food lure to get him to rollover however since he was doing so well with that we started to fade out the food into just a hand lure. At the start he struggled and wasn’t following the hand however after awhile he started to follow the hand. When he did just follow the hand he was told yes and heavily rewarded. The next step for Mojo will be to continue using just a hand lure for rollover. Focus: Repetition A
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Mojos second session we worked on his skateboard skill. This skill is good as it teaches confidence and makes them focus. Mojo did well in progressing throughout his session. Mojo isn’t as confident with stepping into the skateboard as Freya so we worked on conditioning him to just the skateboard moving. To begin with Mojo wasn’t moving his back legs when moving the skateboard however he eventually started to step as the skateboard moved forward and when he did he was heavily rewarded. One thing the trainer did notice was that Mojo was more comfortable with the skateboard moving to the right rather than the left side. The next step for Mojo will be to continue working on conditioning him to the skateboard moving. Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Mojos last session we worked on his drops outside. This skill is important as it allows you to put them in a controlled position when you need to focus on something else. Mojo started the session off well and was dropping when asked and holding his duration. However as the session went on he started to become unfocused and wasn’t dropping when asked. If he didn’t drop when asked he was told ‘uh uh’ and put into his drop. In addition to the use of ‘Uh Uh’ he would then be released straight away and asked to drop again. The next step for Mojo will be to continue working on his drops outside as he struggled towards the end of his session. Focus: Repetition C+
