|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Bentleys first session we worked on his drop skill. Bentley is always highly stimulated when he arrives so I wanted to really test his skills by taking him straight out for his first session and doing a skill that wasn't place. Bentley coped incredibly well with this - there was a time where I couldn't walk him outside the classroom within 10 minutes of drop off. Today he showed how far he has developed. Performing multiple drops and also emergency drops in the car park he was dropped off in. Keep practicing these at home but I believe you are on the right track!||Focus: Repetition||A+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Bentleys second session we worked on the go round skill (off of place) I want to see Bentley get a little more confident with the unknown. This skill required a lot of willpower for Bentley. He is definitely improving although still slow to complete the skill. I am happy woth his progress - seems to put healthy pressure on his mind and make him really think which will be beneficial for his overall confidence within himself. This skill can be practiced at home with his place and an obstacle for him to go around when commanded too.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: For Bentleys final session we worked on the paws up skill. As mentioned Bentley lacks confidence. This skill is great for gently building a dogs confidence by completing paws up on multiple different surfaces. Bentley did well during this session and really improved from start to finish. This skill is easy to work on at home. Simply lure him with treats up onto different surfaces and request paws up. Different textures, heights and consistencies are all great to help further his development.||Focus: Desensitisation||B|
