|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: For Archers first session we worked on conditioning. Archer was a little nervous when we first went into the classroom so we used lots of yummy treats and cuddles to help him relax. We allowed him to sniff the environment to allow him to relax. After 10 minutes we took him back outside to do a confidence walk and help him destress as he was more confident outside. The next step will be to continue working on improving Archers confidence and conditioning him to the classroom.||Focus: Conditioning||X|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Archers second session we worked on his drop skill. This is a good skill as it allows you to put him into a controlled position around distractions. He did really well throughout this session and was following the lure into his drop each time. Archer did best at going into his drop from a sit so we used this technique. As he is still learning the skill we used the lure however next session he should be up to fading it out! The next step for Archer will to be try fade out the food lure into just a hand lure.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Archers last session we worked on his place skill. This is a good skill for getting Archer to go onto the bed and remain there no matter the distractions. Archer absolutely smashed this session. We started off by luring him onto the bed as when I asked him to go onto place he didn’t move and by then end he was being sent to place from 6meters away. He also looooved this skill and had a smile on his face the whole time. Whenever he was sent to place he ran and jumped straight on, it was so good to see him being so confident in his skill! We even started to work on some duration which again he picked up super quick. To begin with he stepped of when the trainer took a small step back but with the use of ‘uh uh’ and ‘yes’ he was able to remain on the bed even when the trainer walked all the way to the end of the lead. The next step will be to continue pushing mr Archer with his distance and distractions as he is doing so well.||Focus: Distance||B+|
