|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Banksy kick started his day with some ‘loose lead’ walking outside with another dog. Banksy was initially very distracted and the trainer struggled to regain his attention, but after a few minutes of the trainer putting Banksy in a sit whenever he would try to interact with the other dog, he performed some beautiful loose lead walking for the remainder of his session. Once he got comfortable with the situation, he maintained great engagement and would only need to be re-situated if the other dog was a bit too close as he just wanted to play. Your little pupper did extremely well as this is quite a big distraction. Keep up the awesome progress and the next step for him would to be adding more distractions to this one.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Banksy’s next session, we kept working on his ‘drop’ skill. At first he was quite distracted with the other dog in the classroom, but once he smelt the treatos he was all ears. Banksy is doing well with his drops, but we are still using a lure to get him to come down. At the start of the session, he would only drop by being in a sit prior, but the trainer was soon able to get him to perform the skill from a standing position, which is great! We began to introduce the verbal cue and he is following on fairly quick. The next step for Banksy would to be start fading the lure and use a hand signal instead. Amazing work, buddy!||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: To finish up, Banksy worked on his ‘place’ skill inside the classroom. He did really well and was able to go to and from place with ease from a short distance. The trainer then decided to try and increase the distance, to test Banksy a bit more. The trainer was able to get Banksy to go to place from just over a metre away, if it was any further than that, Banksy would get confused and just sit down. We want Banksy to keep exceeding with this skill so we are able to increase his distance more each time and test his focus! Super proud of your work today Banksy!||Focus: Distraction||B|
