Classroom Update: Goldie

Goldie

Goldie is one of our smartest students at The Monkey College. She has already mastered imitation and fetch in the Cubicle.

Jessica, her trainer, says that she is extremely motivated (she will do anything for a treat), but sometimes, Goldie overthinks what she is supposed to be doing. They are currently working on discrimination and one of Goldie's challenges is that she thinks she is playing the game Simon! Goldie will touch the object she is directed to, get a treat, and instead of going to the next object, she touches the first and then the next, in a pattern. Jessica says she gets up to a pattern of 3 before she has trouble remembering the pattern.
