Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull) Comment: For his first session today Zimba went on a confidence walk! While practicing his loose lead walking we also exposed him to different farm animals like sheep and a horse. Zimba did really well practicing his skills around these animals and had pretty good engagement. The more we can expose him to the better. Practicing his skills around all these stimuli gives him a job to do, that way he is focused on the skill and not what’s happening around him. Focus: Confidence A
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: For his second session today we worked some more on his container conditioning. We used the usual paws up pods but also some frisbees. Zimba did well with the smaller frisbee when the trainer was holding it but as soon as it was put on the floor he didn’t want anything to do with it. We can still take this as a win, he ate from a new container today just not on the floor. Keep pushing him! Focus: Conditioning X
Skill learnt: Recall Comment: For his last session today we worked on his recalls. We started in the classroom to help him focus and understand what we are working on. After about 5 minutes we moved outside to the bottom car park and worked out there for the remainder. He mostly did pretty good but still had a few moments of distractions. Keep practicing this! Focus: Distraction B

We recommend your next step should be…
