|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building)||Comment: Molly’s first session was the confidence course. She was very hesitant at first to go around the course and the trainer had to work hard to get her to start. Molly got a third of the way around then turned around back to the gate. As the session progressed Molly got more confident and ended up going around the course a number of times. It was great to see her grow her confidence to make it all the way around. Such a difference from the start of the session.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: The second session the trainer took Molly into the classroom and Molly was very nervous about this as there was another dog being trained at the time. The trainer sat with Molly and worked on her yes marker as a way of engagement. Molly at first didn’t want to take treats so the trainer used pats to help put her at ease. By the end of the session Molly was taking treats at times but not all the time. Next time it would be good to see Molly settle quicker in the classroom and take treats.||Focus: Repetition||X|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For her final session the trainer ran through some skills that she though Molly knew. Things like paws up she did really well and it was a big confidence boost for her. She took treats and was eager to show the trainer what she could do. However, the trainer was unable to teach Molly anything new at that point, Molly’s was still just a bit to nervous. The trainer decided to take a confidence walk around the yards and near the kennels. Molly did well with this and took treats at times during the work. The trainer is confidence that tomorrow will be more settled in the classroom and have better engagement. But a great first day for Molly with small steps of progress made.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
