Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: To begin Molly’s day, she continued practicing her ‘ring toss’ trick, still focusing on getting her to hold the ring on her own in the classroom with dog distractions. At the beginning of the session she was a bit nervous as a dog has barked at her, but after some cuddles and encouragement she began taking treats and gnawing at the ring. By the end of the session Molly was attempting to lift the ring off of the floor, but again would often just mouth it then look for her reward. We want for Molly to be able to be more confident and lift the ring with ease to begin helping her move towards the stand. Keep up the good work! Focus: Duration C+
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: Next up, Molly worked on her ‘paws up’ skill. To begin with, Molly was quite upset as there was some maintenance going on in the cattery, which was quite loud. The trainer used the first half of the session to condition her to these new noises. Once the noises stopped, Molly got her confidence back and smashed out her paws up!! She began on an inflatable pod and worked her way up to the wobble board, yay! She was so brave and stayed on the wobble board for several seconds before hopping off! Keep on pushing her with this at home and help build her duration! She’s doing so well! Focus: Confidence B
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: To finish off, Molly did some ‘loose lead’ walking outside with added drops, as the classroom was still a bit too noisy for her and we wanted to end her day on a good note. Molly had lovely loose lead and dropped exactly when told. She was able to do this while having other dogs walking by, which is so good! Some of our resident doggos then barked at her through the fence and she got nervous again, so the trainer took her to a quieter area and just gave her some cuddles and treats to end this session on a positive note! She then happily walked back into the kennels where she rejoined Cadbury next door. Great work today Molly, even with those scary distractions! Focus: Distraction B+
