|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Cadbury focused on further developing his skill loose lead around the pet retreat facility. Cadbury performed well, he can become excited and pull on the lead. Cadbury was initially distracted by the environment, with some guidance from his trainer and the use of drops he redirected his focus quickly. Cadbury did become tired quickly during this session because of all the physical movement. The remainder of his session was spent on drop duration and conditioning to other dogs.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In his second session, Cadbury focused on further conditioning to grooming while in the classroom around multiple dogs. Cadbury performed well, the trainer placed him in a drop which he did not break for the whole session. Cadbury did not appear to be bothered by being brushed at all. During this session the trainer noticed a lump on his right-hand jaw which was bleeding, we are unsure if he did this himself or if it was touched with a brush. Just wanted to make sure you were aware.||Focus: Conditioning||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Cadbury focused on learning the new skill chin rest within the classroom. We focused on this skill to help aid with vet and grooming visits to help keep his focus. Cadbury performed well, he followed the lure to place his chin on the trainer's palm, he required a high reinforcement schedule (treats every 3 seconds) to remain in this position. This would be a great skill to practise at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
