|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building)||Comment: Zimba’s first session today was the confidence course. The trainer did this first so that Zimba could start the day on a high after being confident in a different environment. He flew around it this time except for one little section he will not step over. But the other sections he went so fast around without even the trainer running beside him to encourage him along. Fantastic first session.||Focus: Repetition||X|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Next up for Zimba was place training. He went on his mat well but he then wanted to scratch at it so the trainer worked on getting Zimba onto our beds. It took a little time but he did it. Once he got all four feet on the trainer took him on and off a few times and he was great. The trainer then started duration with him and although he broke a few times he did well. The trainer moved all around the bed and made big movements and danced around and Zimba was fantastic. Keep practicing with low level distractions.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Final session for Zimba was flop! He wasn’t going into position from a stand so the trainer got Zimba into position from sit. From here the trainer started adding duration to this skill. Zimba was keen to just jump straight up from the flop position. The trainer increased the frequency of treats and by the end of the session, although Zimba couldn’t hold position when the trainer stood upright he was holding the position longer. At home help Zimba hold flop for longer by increasing treats and slowly stand up straight. Using the yes marker along the journey to standing up right.||Focus: Duration||C|
