Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Targeting (touch) Comment: Today Molly began with her ‘touch’ skill, focusing on making sure she does not move to it until commanded. At first she was very confused, just wanting to boop the target stick with her nose, but with the use of her non-reward marker “ah ah” when she started to move towards it, she realised she must wait until asked to do so. It took her about 10 minutes to understand, but she got there in the end! Keep up the good work at home and remember to use “ah ah” if she begins to move without being asked to do so! We hope to have her build this duration. Focus: Duration B+
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Next, Molly did some ‘loose lead’ walking outside, focusing on distractions. She was a little distracted at first, sniffing every inch of the grass and wanting to see what these little insects wanted, but when the trainer used “ah ah”, she realised what she was doing was not exactly right and gave full engagement and focus for the remainder of the session. Awesome work Molly for not letting those pesky insects get the better of you! Keep on adding in those distractions and up the reward dosage in relation to the level of the distractions. Focus: Distraction B+
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: To finish off, Molly practiced her ‘paws up’ skill, this time on the wobble board! She was a bit skeptical at first, only slightly tapping it with one paw, but still being rewarded for her bravery and towards the end of the session she could comfortably place one paw on! There was even the one time she put both paws on!! SO brave!! Our aim for Molly is for her to be able to comfortably place both front paws on the wobble board and help build her confidence even more! Absolutely amazing work today, Molly! Focus: Confidence B+
