Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session today woody was worked around his sister in the car park with loose lead. The trainers had them very close today, walking almost right on top of each other with a focus on keeping their engagement with the handler they had. They both did amazing being able to follow their commands quickly and effectively and especially woody who kept focus on the trainer the whole time! Focus: Conditioning B
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: For his second session today woody worked on his “pull” skill a little more. The trainer used a little wagon today and attached his hanky chain to this, it is a little less heavy than the skateboard so easier to pull for Woody (setting him up for success!). He seems to understand the command “pull it” now and so in order to entice him to pull it further then a little tug the trainer put down a bucket as a form of marker for woody to pull the wagon past. If he dragged it past the marker he was given a reward, if he dragged it across with a single tug is was given a huge reward! He was only able to do this once however so the trainer ended the session on this high success to better retain the memory in his head for next time. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Trick Training Comment: For his final session today the trainer ended on something a little more physical to burn any left over energy Woody may have so he can have a nice snooze while he waited for pick up. The trainer continued his hoop jump skill today and while he did have to go back to the basics to begin with to remind him that he can indeed jump through the hoop the trainer was able to get him outside of the classroom jumping through the hoop at the tallest height he has done it yet! The trainer is very impressed with Woody and his ability to progress so quickly and can’t wait to have him back again soon for some more training! Focus: Repetition B
