|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Rosie’s first session was for sit pretty. A great trick that helps the dogs to have back end awareness and balance. She struggle during this session and wanted to jump rather than start in the sitting position. Given we don’t want to ruin her sit command the trainers can’t use the command sit first to get her in position. As such Rosie did struggle to get the concept of sitting first before then lifting her paws up. That said she did try really hard and it was good to build on the skill she had already start to learn. Next time the trainer would like to see Rosie get in position to do the skill rather than jumping.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Further work on the skill middle was next up for Rosie. Not only is this skill a cute one to learn it is also a handy to use when the dog is feeling a bit stressed in certain situations. At first Rosie struggled with following the lure between the trainer’s legs, but by the end of the session she was coming between the trainers legs well. The next step is to get her to sit. To do this the trainers will encourage her to come more forward but still between the trainer’s legs and luring her into the sit position.||Focus: Repetition||D|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Another focus on sit pretty was last up for Rosie. This time really focused and wasn’t jumping at all. She was using the trainer’s arms to hold herself up to start with, however as the session progressed she went to just using one paw to balance to starting to offering the skill without the lure!! The trainers will keep working on this with her to work towards putting a name to the action.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
