|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Zimba’s first session was eating treats from different containers. He did a great job and did eat out of the red container well today. However he was reluctant to try with the metal food bowl. This bowl also made noise on the floor which Zimba was worried about. So the trainer started also conditioning Zimba to the noise the bowl made by giving Zimba treats while making the noise. By the end of the session he was much better. Keep going at home with different containers using his meals as this will motivate him to eat.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Next up for Zimba was loose lead walking with distractions and wow did he nail it. He was very distracted by the animal poo along the way but the trainer kept him walking and he complied well. The trainer then stopped so Zimba could watch the sheep. He was to distracted to flop but he was ok to sit. As he was watching the sheep one decided to head over to the trainer and Zimba. It came within a metre of Zimba. Zimba held his sit position and was very calm around the sheep! The trainer didn’t push it to much and headed back to the classroom after a couple of minutes. Zimba did a fantastic job handling that situation.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: Last up for Zimba was recalls. He started really well and although only on a normal lead he was smashing it. The trainer headed up to the top car park and the gate was open into the next paddock. Zimba was interested in going for a look so the trainer used that distraction for recalls. Although Zimba recalled well he did still need that slight pressure on the lead as a reminder of what he needed to do. Zimba ended the session on zoomies, which was fun to watch, and a nice loose lead back to the yards!||Focus: Distraction||B|
