Norbit was his usual energetic self and it took a little bit to get him to focus on his training. He had a heap of fun today working on his trick skills!

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

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session we worked on loose lead outside with spins. Norbit was very distracted initially and it took some time for him to start focusing on the trainer. Once he focused he was pretty good but still did a little pulling. His spins while walking were spot on though! He did neat quick spins each time he was asked. Continue working on his loose lead in distracting environments to build his engagement.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: For his second session we worked on the middles skill from drop with Norbit. Norbit did pretty well with this skill - he missed going between the legs twice (and shot through once when distracted by food) but every other time he stopped perfectly between the trainers leg in wither a sit or drop. We started testing with a few different angles but this needs a little more work with him.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: For his last session we worked on a spooky-themed trick: paws up on a Halloween bucket. Norbit was very distracted and would just blindly follow the lure, leading to a lot of knocking over the bucket. After slowing down the lure he was a bit better though would hover over it a lot so needed some encouragement to stand on the bucket. A great trick to continue working on at home!||Focus: Repetition||C+|
