Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: Zimba’s first session was door manners as he went to the classroom. Although he was wanting to pull through the doorways he soon started sitting and waiting which was great. Once in the classroom he was a little more confident than before but was still very hesitant. The trainer took her time with him and before long he had walked through the whole classroom. Although still nervous at times he did a great job. Focus: Repetition B
Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building) Comment: Zimba is still not very confident so the trainer took him to the confidence course and he really did struggle with this. There was a certain section that he didn’t want to cross. However with the rest of the course he got much more confident. It was until the trainer went to open the gate that Zimba finally tackled the section he didn’t like! It will be great to continue to build Zimba’s confidence through this course. Focus: Repetition X
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: Last up for Zimba was place. However Zimba is still not confident enough to get on the place bed. The trainer tried a yoga mat but Zimba still wouldn’t put paws on it. The trainer sat with Zimba near the bed and encouraged him but he still wasn’t keen. The trainer used the remaining part of the lesson the further practice sit at the door and wait to be released. Which he is getting much better at this. Zimba’s confidence is already building from the last time he was here. Can’t wait to see the progress he brings on Friday! Focus: Repetition D
