Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Mojo began his day by revisiting his ‘skateboard’ trick, focusing on getting him confident in pushing himself. Mojo still needs a heavy lure, which is okay, we can begin to fade it once he is pushing himself more. The trainer would lure him to have 2 paws on the board and slowly move their hand away, making Mojo follow along and therefore pushing the board himself. He struggles to understand he needs to move his back legs as well as pushing, so work on that at home! If you give his bum a little tap he gets the idea. Awesome work! Our goal for Mojo and Freya is to have a skateboard race with them, so definitely keep practicing at home and we can have some extra fun with this idea! Focus: Confidence B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Next up, Mojo worked on a new skill, ‘around’. Around is a skill where Mojo begins on his ‘place’ skill, and walks around a cone or object, then returning to place. The trainer felt this would be a good skill for Mojo to learn as he is still a bit cautious of place, but by pairing it with another skill, he might not think so much of it. The trainer began by luring Mojo off place and around the makeshift cone, saying “yes” when he reached the point of no return around the cone, and rewarding him once he was back on place. Mojo did really well! He followed the lure nicely and went onto place much more confidently! As he is learning the foundation, the trainer remained with a lure this session. Keep practicing at home and begin to fade the lure if he is performing 90% of the time. Great job! Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: To finish off, Mojo practiced his ‘loose lead’ walking with some added drops, both inside and outside the classroom. He did really well! Mojo has great engagement for the most part and is always checking in with the trainer, which is exactly what we want. There were the few odd times where he would get a little distracted and wander off a little, but with the use of his non-reward marker “ah ah”, he would walk back in line nicely. Focus on pushing the distractions at home while walking, see what gets him really excited and work on that. Great work today, Mojo! Focus: Distraction B+
