|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her first session, Poppy focused on further developing her skill 'loose lead ' walking with repetitions under distractions (training outside). We focused on this skill to reduce Poppy's challenging behaviour of pulling. Poppy was initially distracted by the environment and struggled to engage with her trainer. The trainer used 'drop' and 'spin' to help redirect her focus. Incorporating these skills helped Poppy focus on the trainer, rather than the yummy smells around her. Next time we would like to see Poppy engage with her trainer earlier in the session. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home, when she shows no engagement ask for drop and wait for her to engage with you before moving on again. While walking, incorporate 'spins' to help maintain her engagement.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her second session, Poppy focused on learning the new skill 'Giant Jenga' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to challenge Poppy with a fun skill for her birthday week. This session was focused on encouraging Poppy to nose target the wooden block. Poppy performed very well, she interacted with the block straight away. She quickly began touching it with her nose, then opening her mouth onto it. Poppy loved learning this skill.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her final session, Poppy focused on further developing her skill 'roll over' with repetitions within the classroom. Poppy struggled to engage with her trainer and focus throughout this session. Once engaged she followed a lure well but struggled to roll over, the trainer focused on building her confidence surrounding being in the different stages of this skill. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Conditioning||C+|
