Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Molly’s first session today focused on her loose lead walking skill. We started off outside since there were some workmen around, we were able to walk past them without her reacting or pulling towards them! Molly seemed a little hesitant of them to start with but quickly got used to their presence. To finish off her session we proceeded to the cattery, she was a bit hesitant to walk into the cattery so we practiced her drop skill by the entrance and then inside. This helped her focus on her skill instead of her surroundings. Once in the cattery Molly was a bit nervous of all the sounds but would follow the trainer regardless. She got a little bit of a fright near the birds when they made some noises but we worked her through it and by the end of the session she could walk past them no problem. Mollys loose lead is really good, she just needs exposure to all sorts of scenarios. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: Molly’s second session today we started with her blowing bubbles skill. She was very excited to start but quickly got overwhelmed in the classroom so we took her outside to practice her drops instead. Mollys drop skill is very good, we practiced on the grass area and asked for a drop and for her to stay there while the trainer walked, jumped and skipped around her. She did pretty good with this, she struggled the most with fast movements made by the trainer but still managed to hold the drop 90% of the time! Keep pushing this skill with new distractions! Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Molly’s last session today was focused on her ring toss skill. Since the classroom was too busy we moved to the cattery where it’s quiet and cool. We focused on just getting her to pick up the ring but not put it on the pole. We did this because it’s a new environment to practice in so we have to reduce expectations. Regardless, Molly was picking the ring up and dropping it. This is really good because her previous session in the cattery she was a bit hesitant but she was much more relaxed this time around. ! The fact she performed some of the skill in a new environment is proof that she will be able to do it completely. Focus: Repetition B+
