Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his first session today Robbie was worked on a brand new skill designed to capture his attention and engage him with the trainer. The new skill that was started today was “peek-a-boo”. This is when the trainer stands next to Robbie with him on their side. They form a ring with their arm against their hip and lure Robbie’s head through this ring! Once he was doing this successfully enough the trainer started pairing the verbal “peek-a-boo” just has he was putting his head through the ring. He progressed super quickly today and the trainer was very impressed with Robbie. Focus: Foundation C
Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object) Comment: For his second session today the trainer worked on Robbie “pram” skill. Today the focus was getting Robbie to push the pram all on his own today the the trainer stepped away from the pram. He was awesome with this today, he is showing good understanding of the verbal command “pram” and the trainer was able to entice him forward with a treat and he was pushing it all on his own today! Focus: Distance B+
Skill learnt: Desensitisation Comment: To start out the trainer was working on chaining some tricks together to give Robbie a bit of a fun challenge, however they soon noticed that during this he was very hesitant about the trainer touching his paws! In order to help him with this the trainer took the second half of the session and worked on some vet holds with Robbie focusing on his paws. By the end of the session the trainer was able to have Robbie’s paw in his hand for a short duration before he would then try rip it out if the trainers hand, while it’s still not ideal it was much better than where he started at today and the trainer will continue working in this with Robbie in future sessions. Focus: Desensitisation C+
