|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session Charlie focused on further developing his skill ‘loose lead’ while also introducing him to new play commands. The trainer has noticed Charlie loves to play, they decided to introduce this as a reward while training. This includes offering him the tug toy and saying ‘get it’ when wanting to reward a high value behavior (engagement). After playing for a few moments the trainer began to use the verbal cue ‘out’, as this was new he struggled to drop the toy. To help him understand the trainer stopped playing and moving until he released the toy. Using the play reward Charlie performed very well, he showed great engagement and redirected his focus quickly when distracted.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: In his second session Charlie focused on further developing his engagement and skills including loose lead, recall and drop around anther dog. Charlie performed very well; he can initially become distracted by the environment (other dog) but redirected his focus quickly. The trainer was impressed with his performance and engagement throughout this session, especially with his recalls.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session Charlie focused on further developing his skill ‘place’ with duration under high distractions (multiple dogs within the classroom, human and furniture movement). Charlie initially struggled with these distractions and broke place three times. However, as the session progressed he quickly began to maintain it well.||Focus: Distraction||C|
