|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his first session, Chema focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with 'loose lead' walking in and around the kennel area with 10 dogs. Beginning training inside the kennel block, Chema was initially distracted, however, he quickly began to redirect his focus onto the trainer. Once he was responding well to the drop cue inside the trainer slowly began to progress outside where he could see all 10 dogs. Chema was initially interested in the dogs but remained engaged with his trainer. He successfully responded to the drop cue and held the position till released, even when 3 dogs were barking at him. A big step for him, check out our Instagram story to see his progress.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Chema focused on further developing his skill 'drop' in and around the kennel area. We focused on this to build his impulse control and decision-making surrounding dogs. Chema initially struggled as when we walked through the gate another dog barked at him, this caused him to react. To redirect his focus the trainer asked for a drop which he performed. As this was challenging for Chema the trainer completed this several times, walking in and out past the barking dog (Ces). After the first repetition, Chema performed well, remained engaged with his trainer and listened to commands.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Chema focused on further developing his skill 'skateboard' within the classroom. Chema loves practising this skill. He performed well, although he can become too excited and flip the skateboard. He has begun pushing the skateboard with his back paws with no lure.||Focus: Foundation||B|
