|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Bruno focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead' walking outside under distractions (training outside while dogs, people and cars went past). Bruno was initially very excited and struggled to engage with his trainer and displaying challenging behaviours such as pulling. As the session processed, Bruno began to redirect his focus. Once engaged, Bruno performed very well, he showed great engagement and ignored distractions. We suggest contouring to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second, Bruno focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with duration within the classroom. We focused on this skill to build his impulse control and duration. Bruno initially struggled to remain in drop, however, with some guidance he began to maintain it well. He successfully remained in drop for 3 minutes without breaking. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home, focusing on duration.||Focus: Duration||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Bruno focused on further developing his skill 'place' with duration and distractions. We focused on this skill to build his impulse control and understanding of this skill. Bruno performed well, he showed a good understanding of the place skill at a basic level. Today we challenged him with ball, toy and human movement distractions. Bruno initially struggled, however with some guidance he was quickly remaining on place with little guidance from his trainer, despite distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
