|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: In his first session, Arlo focused on further developing his skill middle with distractions and baby sounds conditioning. During this session, the trainer played baby sounds to begin to condition him for the noise. Arlo does very well with his middles, the trainer challenged him with walking past food distractions (kibble on the floor). This was initially hard for Arlo as he loves treats, but with some help from the trainer he began to perform well and walk past the treats into the middle position.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his second session, Arlo focused on further developing his skill Quoits within the classroom. We focused on this skill to build his problem-solving skills and progress the skill. Arlo loves training this skills, he quickly picks up the ring and starts moving it around. As he was doing well the trainer changed the criteria of what he needed to do to get a reward. Arlo needed to pick up the ring and drop it on the pole or wooden plate the pole is starting on. This was initially challenging for Arlo, but with some guidance, he began to perform well.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: In his final session, Arlo focused on further developing his skill send to crate with high distractions. Arlo performs well with his send to create, to challenge him the trainer added food distraction, starting with one plate of food and slowly increasing to 6 plates and kibble scattered across the floor. Arlo progressed well throughout the session, he did struggle when the treats were scattered across the floor, but with some guidance from the trainer, he began to perform well. During this session, baby sounds were also playing.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
