Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his first session today we worked on his rollover skill. To start with we lured him into a drop position and then moved the treat around towards his back end. He followed the lure and would stretch as far as he could and then flop onto his side. He did this a few times but would always stand back up. To combat this we had lots of treats in our hand and rewarded him the further he got. Eventually he did rollover a couple times towards the end of the session. Each time he did it successfully we gave him a handful of treats, like a jackpot. This skill just needs practice but he is showing great progress. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: For his second session today we got to work outside with the paddle pool. We started with an empty pool and just worked on getting him to walk in, stay there and then be released. We then filled the pool up just a little bit, just enough to get his feet wet and repeated the process. He wasn’t worried at all about the water and even ate treats out of the water no problem! This just needs practice to build his confidence however he did really well today! Focus: Conditioning B
Skill learnt: Spin Comment: For his last session today we worked on Robbies spin skill. We practiced his spins while stationary and once he got into the swing of it we moved off and practiced while walking! He did really well with both his loose lead walking and the random spin here and there! This is a great skill to incorporate into their walks as it helps keep them focused on the handler! He really knows his spins well, we started reducing the hand signal and incorporated a verbal cue “spin.” He did really well with this skill and just needs practice, practicing in different environments that he can get overwhelmed in sometimes is also a great idea! Focus: Repetition B+

We recommend your next step should be…
