|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Arlo’s departures from the kennels when he begins his sessions are taking no time at all now. He sits well to have the lead on and is starting to learn that jumping at the gate gets him nowhere. His first session was a continued focus on the walking behind. The trainer started in the alleyway and then moved to the driveway. The trainer used the fence line to help Arlo not push passed however, Arlo was too distracted so the lesson continued in the classroom. There is more room to push passed the trainer here but also less distractions. Arlo didn’t do too bad and is making progress each time.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Arlo is now making great choices when coming out of the crates for each session. Although he is very excited he is listening to the trainer and jumping less. The trainer worked more on drops with Arlo and continued outside. However Arlo is struggling with the other dogs and is to distracted to listen. His drops are great outside with low distractions. The trainer would like to work more on this with Arlo and really proof his drop as it is such a good tool for helping dogs refocus.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building)||Comment: Last up for Arlo was the confidence course. Arlo was ok going around the course but with the trainer. He got very whiney and did not want to continue around the course alone. Helping build Arlo’s confidence through this activity as well as strengthening his basic obedience is going to set him on the path to reacting less to other dogs. When you are home again, please consider booking a private appointment, to assist in giving you the tools and knowledge to continue training Arlo at home.||Focus: Confidence||X|
