|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: In Annabelles first session we trained paws up, we trained this on three different objects the first one was was tub flipped upside down then a wobbly spike plate form then a skate board. Anna did incredible with this skill she knew exactly what she had to do for some treats. Next session I would like to work on the skate board more see if we can get it to move while she’s on it. Training this skill at home is always some fun, have an object she can put her paws up on such as we used a few objects but the first was a tub. Taping on the tub so she knows what your asking and she should put her paw up on it pretty much straight away when she does reward with “yes” and treats, if she gets both of them up that’s even better.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: In her second session we trained peekaboo. This skill is just something fun for you and her to do together and because she knows all the basic skills pretty well. Anna did well with this skill we would lure her nose through our legs and put thumbs up so she knows she’s doing what we want. I would like to work on this more to help her confidence but she’s doing fantastic. Training this at home lure her nose under your legs thumbs up as a reward and treats, when wanting to release her throw food in front of her so she can walk to get it.||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In Annas last session we trained the doggy door, training her with the door will help her go through it her self which will make it easier for when people have her as there own. She did pretty well she’s now used of the door on her back and her bum just needs more work so she can push the door her self. Next session I think doing targeting such as touch will help with this skill. Training this will help us as trainers, first you go in through the door and close it behind you, hold the flap up of the doggy door put some treats on the door ledge and put thumbs up when she goes to grab it, lure her through the door with treats once both her legs are through it put the doggy flap slowly down so it’s on her back, and keep luring her through always a lot of thumbs up and treats.||Focus: Repetition||B|
We recommend your next step should be…

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
