|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her first session, Arya focused on further developing her skill loose lead and drop while outside. We focused on this skill as Arya was overexcited when beginning training, practising her loose lead helps build her engagement and reduce her challenging behaviour of pulling. The trainer also used her known skill of drop to help redirect her focus, Arya performed well with her drop but can struggle to respond when she is distracted. As the session progressed her engagement improved and her challenging behaviour of pulling reduced.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session, Arya focused on further developing her skill drop within the cattery with another dog nearby. We focused on this skill to continue her understanding of drop and develop her impulse control around other dogs. Arya began this session more relaxed than her first session, she was initially distracted but quickly redirected her focus to show good engagement. Once engaged she showed good knowledge of the drop cue. When in drop she can struggle to hold duration. As the session progressed she did get distracted by the dog and cats but each time redirected her focus quickly. When she is distracted she does struggle to respond to the drop cue, the trainer went back to basics and used a lure to help her focus.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her final session, Arya focused on further developing her skill place under distractions of another dog in the classroom. We focused on this skill to continue conditioning her to dogs. Arya responds well to the place cue and has a good duration. During this session, Arya showed great engagement and showed little interest in the other dog. She did react once but that was all for the whole session. The trainer was very impressed with her engagement and performance despite the dog moving around the classroom.||Focus: Foundation||B|
