|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: Rosie’s first session today was focused on building some confidence. We used the large wobble board for this, luring her on, trying to get all four feet. We managed to get her two front feet on and build duration however she was extremely hesitant to put her back feet on as well. She would walk over the board quickly but never had more than three feet on it at a time. Keep working on her confidence with wobbly surfaces, she seemed happy enough to have two feet on which is a big improvement.||Focus: Confidence||B|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: For her second session today Rosie worked on her conditioning to nail clipping. For this we spent 5 minutes just picking up her leg, rewarding. The next 5 minutes was holding her foot and inspecting nails. Then the last 5 minutes holding the nail clippers on her foot, not like we were going to clip it but just resting it there. Rosie did well this session and seemed a little more comfortable around the clippers. Keep working on this, it’s something that can take a while for them to get used to.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Rosie’s last session today was focused on some more confidence building skills. We worked on getting her to jump through a hoop, to start with we used a large hoop and lured her through. Gradually she became more comfortable and we were able to throw the treat on the other side for her to retrieve. By the end of the session we used a smaller hoop but had to go back to luring her through as it was a bit different for her. Rosie seemed to respond well when the trainer got really excited and encouraged her through the hoop by being really happy! Keep building her confidence with fun skills she is doing so well!||Focus: Confidence||B|
