|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Buster focused on further developing his skill loose lead walking with repetition under high distractions (training outside where dogs were barking in the kennels). We focused on this skill to help proof Busters loose lead walking. Buster performed well, he can become distracted by the dogs barking but redirects his focus quickly. To further help Buster remain engaged the trainer began to incorporate sits and drops while walking. Next time the trainer would like to see buster remain engaged despite high distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his second session, Buster focused on further developing his skill 'place' under high distractions (training in cattery). We focused on this skill to help improve Busters understanding of place and to encourage him to settle around high distractions. Buster performed very well, he did break place once but with some guidance began to maintain it well. Buster had great engagement and ignored the distractions. We suggest continuing to challenge Buster with a range of different distractions at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his final session, Buster focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with repetitions under distraction (training in classroom, with door open to cattery, where two people were working). Buster struggled with this high distraction, he was hesitant to go into drop and had little duration. With some guidance and increasing the distance between Buster and the door he slowly began to redirect his focus back onto the trainer. This was a very challenging session for Buster, however once engaged he performed well and had good duration. Next time the trainer would like to see Buster show more engagement towards his trainer.||Focus: Distraction||C|
