Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For Mollys first session we worked on her place skill. This is a good skill for Molly as it gets her to relax on the bed. We worked specifically on her duration with people distractions. Molly started off by breaking if the trainer did a little jump. If she broke before being released she was told ‘uh uh’ and she would often correct herself back onto the bed. Towards the end of the session the trainer was able to run away from the bed, squat and call her and then do some big jumps while standing away from the bed. The next step for Molly will be to continue working on her place skill with people distractions as while she did well she also did break quiet a few times over the session. Focus: Distraction B
Skill learnt: Middle Position Comment: For Mollys second session we worked on her middles skill. This is a good skill for Molly as you are able to place her in a controlled position around distractions and you can use it to redirect her attention from distractions onto you. As Molly is still learning this skill we used a lure and she did really well. We lure around the legs and then to in between. As she was doing so well with the lure we started to fade it out into just a hand signal and she picked it up really quickly again. The next step for Molly will be to continue working on her Middles skill still working on fading out the lure. Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For Mollys last session we worked on her rollover trick. This is a good trick as it really pushes Mollys thinking. Molly struggled to begin with as she would keep standing off as soon as the trainer moved the lure towards her shoulder. We started to shape the skill as she was having abit of trouble and just worked on her bending her front half. After about 5 minutes she started to roll over onto her back and from there she picked up to skill really easily. The next step for Molly will be to continue working on her rollover skill trying to fade out the lure. Focus: Repetition B
