|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his first session, Clancy focused on further developing his skill drop under high distractions. These distractions included being outside with another dog nearby. Clancy was initially distracted by the outside environment and the dog nearby, he struggled to show engagement or listen to the drop command. However, as the session progressed, he began to redirect his focus and perform well. Once focused he responds well to the drop command but can still struggle with his duration. By the end of the session, Clancy was walking toward another dog, and listening to the drop command when 2 meters away. He initially struggled to drop when this close to the other dog but progressed well after a few repetitions.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his second session, Clancy focused on further developing his loose lead walking around distractions (in the cattery with another dog nearby). Clancy was initially distracted, after some help from the trainer, he began to build his engagement and walk well. Clancy was interested in the other dog but did not react, even when the other dog started to bark, he chose to go into a drop and not react. This is great progress for Mr Clancy.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Clancy focused on having some fun with the wobble board, while conditioning another dog in the classroom. During this session, Clancy wasn't in a controlled position but showed no signs of reactivity towards the other dog. He interacted with the wobble board quickly placing his two front paws onto it. After some encouragement, he was jumping on and off the wobble board like a champ.||Focus: Foundation||A|
