|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: First up for Bentley was conditioning of the van and the van crate. This is to help him when it comes time for his hydro session. The trainers took Bentley to the van and Bentley just jumped straight into the crate in the van. Next time the trainers will work on putting a shirt over Bentley's head. This is to help him when it comes time to put the lifejacket over his head. Because Bentley was so awesome at the van entry that the trainer had more than enough time to do a confidence course session with Bentley. He did fantastic, was quite excited to be heading towards the course and once in the course was very quick to have a run around it! He enjoyed it.||Focus: Repetition||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Once again the trainer wanted to introduce Bentley to a new skill but he was again to distracted and couldn't focus on learning a new. The trainer went back to the paws up skill as Bentley is quite comfortable with this. However the trainer pushed him to start putting paws up on smaller objects. This enabled Bentley to focus on the task and help him ignore the other dogs. He progressed well with this. Next time the trainer will see if teaching a new trick outside away from the dogs helps Bentley to focus on a new skill.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his final session the trainer used around to help Bentley to ignore the other dogs that were in the classroom. By placing the cones in front of the crates where the other very noisey dogs were meant that Bentley had quite a distraction to deal with whilst performing a skill he already knew. This will help build his confidence as he is getting the small wins in an environment that he is not comfortable with. Bentley is progressing well with this skill and it was great to be able to push the distance from the cone.||Focus: Repetition||A+|
