|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his first session, Cadbury focused on further developing his skill 'place' with duration under high distractions (training outside with four dogs in close proximity). We focused on this skill to better his decision making as part of his canine reactivity. Cadbury initially broke place on the first two repetitions, but with some guidance he began to maintain it well. Next time we would like to see Cadbury not break place on the first repetitions. He successfully remained on place for 10 minutes with high distractions without breaking.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Cadbury focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with duration under distractions (training in the classroom while 5 other dogs are in close proximity). We focused on this skill to improve his decision making as part of his canine reactivity. Cadbury performed very well, he responds well to the verbal cue 'drop' and showed great engagement, ignoring all distractions (including other dogs and high value treats). Cadbury showed no visible signs of reactivity throughout this session, he was calm, relaxed and settled.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Cadbury focused on challenging his brain with learning the new skill 'targeting' with repetitions. Cadbury was initially hesitant to interact with the spoon, but with some guidance and lots of treats he began to touch the spoon. He slowly began to touch the spoon with his nose despite a high distracting environment within the classroom. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home to build engagement.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
