Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Mollys first session today focused on her place duration with trainer distractions. This session focused on her impulse control and ability to stay put no matter how tempting the trainer was. While Molly was on place we walked, jumped, sat and rode a scooter around. She did well with the movement but struggled if the trainer started talking to her without releasing her first. She did step off place a couple times to come receive cuddles but the trainer was quick to say “ah ah” and she responded well. When the trainer sat on the floor near her seemed to be her biggest struggle, since she really loves her cuddles it’s a great way to push the skill. She has great knowledge of her release word and will wait for it before jumping off! Keep pushing this skill with different distractions, don’t be afraid to be firm with her as she is just pushing/testing the boundaries. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: Mollys second session today focused on her paws up skill while moving her back end around. When we first started this skill she was a bit slow to start and would jump off when the trainer encouraged her to move around. By the end of the session it didn’t take much spatial pressure to get her moving! She definitely does better moving around to her left but does well going to the right, just slower. Keep up the good work, to test this skill use different objects and get her to go further and further around. Focus: Conditioning A
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Mollys last session today was all about confidence with the skateboard. We started working in the classroom but she wasn’t focused at all. We decided to work just outside the classroom on the cement. Out here she had much better focus and would follow the lure. She was a bit hesitant to start with and would only put her feet on for a few seconds. By the end of the session we were able to keep her front feet on and even move the board backwards and forwards a little bit without her jumping off. We kept the movement slow and predictable so she didn’t freak out! Keep working on her confidence with the movement but she did well. Focus: Confidence C+
