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

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: Molly began her day practicing her ‘skateboard’ trick. Molly was quite nervous again today, not wanting to do anything, just dropping and looking at the trainer instead. The trainer tried to coax Molly on the skateboard with treats, but she again would drop in response. The trainer then placed some treats on the board and Molly would happily eat them off, so the trainer “yes” rewarded her for those efforts. Keep on practicing at home, if she is confident getting on the board, build her duration and frequently reward her and teach her to only hop off when released. Focus: Confidence C
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: Next up, Molly worked on her ‘loose lead’ walking both inside the cattery and outside as she seems more cheerful in those spaces. Molly has beautiful walking, she just lacks some engagement. If she were to oddly walk ahead, the trainer would use her non-reward marker “ah ah” and she would come back alongside. Molly-moo does not seem to respond to noises as a way to regain her attention, so if you are struggling with this at home, maybe try her favourite toy or object. Great work, Molly! Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: To finish off, Molly was the last left in the classroom and this sparked some confidence from her! She happily did her ‘paws up’ skill, so while she was happier, the trainer brought out the skateboard again to give it a go, and she did it!! Molly is now confident in placing 2 paws on the board, so the trainer focused on building her duration with this and only allowing her to hop off when released. The next step would be to slowly add movement, remember to reward frequently!! So so proud of you Molly! Focus: Duration B+

We recommend your next step should be…
