|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Barney focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead' walking around the Pet Retreat facility. Barney was initially excited and distracted when beginning training, he showed little engagement and pulled on the lead. As the session progressed the trainer began to utilize his know skills spin and drop. This helped Barney redirect his focus and perform well. He continued to remain engage and drop when a pushbike rode up behind him.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Barney focused on further developing his skill 'drop' under high distractions. We focused on this skill to further build his impulse control and help reduce his jumping. Barney performed well, he only broke drop twice when the trainer first began to move tennis balls around. With some guidance he began to maintain it well, he successfully remained in drop while the trainer played with toys, balls, speakers and food.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Barney focused on further developing his skill 'place' and 'drop' while excited and playing the training game red light, green light. Barney loves to play and this game is no exception. He initially struggled to respond to the cue drop, but listened well to the place cue. As the session progressed, he began to perform well with both skills, but can still get distracted by the game and not listen. Keep practicing this at home.||Focus: Obedience||C+|
