|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his first session, Archie focused on further conditioning to the classroom and learning the skill place. Archie was excited to see the trainer and begin training. Archie happily approached the classroom, he was initially a little hesitant to enter but after a moment walked straight in. The trainer placed towels on the floor, this helped Archie feel settled and walk onto the place. Once on the bed, he can struggle with duration but progressed well throughout the session. Archie showed great progress just from this first session.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Archie focused on continuing to condition to the classroom and practising his skill drop. Archie knows his drop skill well, however, he does struggle when on the floor in the classroom. As the session progressed his confidence began to grow and he was performing drops well in the classroom. He did occasional struggle to get up when in drop but overall performed well.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In his final session, Archie focused on conditioning to different textures and floor types while in the classroom with 2 other dogs training. The trainer focused on tiles, mats, a tarp and muffin tins. Archie was initially hesitant to walk on the tiles but with some guidance and treats, he slowly began to interact with them. Archie has no issues with any of the other textures. Head over to our Instagram story to see what surfaces he was conditioned to.||Focus: Conditioning||X|
