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

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Engagement Comment: Nala started off her day again with an engagement game. At first she did really well and had great focus, even sitting a couple times when asked! She decided she had enough of the treatos for now and had a cuddle sesh with her trainer. Nala was so happy to be out and about today, greeting every trainer she came across with such a wiggly butt! Focus: Distraction X
Skill learnt: Targeting (touch) Comment: Next up, Nala worked on her ‘touch targeting’ skill, using a target stick. Touch is a great skill to have as it is a shaping skill. Shaping skills are really beneficial as it will help teach Nala to problem solve and build confidence to do so. You can do this at home with basically any object! Give it a go! Focus: Foundation C+
Skill learnt: Exposure Comment: To finish the day, Nala took a nice big walk around the facility and cattery, meeting the feline friends and getting used to them. She responded really well! However, she was not a fan of our resident birds, which is okay! We can slowly build her confidence around them through further sessions! Awesome work today, Nala! Focus: Confidence X
