|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her first session, Cookie focused on further developing her skill 'send to place' utilising red light, green light. We focused on this skill to proof Cookies place while highly aroused and excited. Cookie loves to play with the tug, she got very excited and initially struggled to remove herself from play to go to place. But as the session progressed, she began to redirect her focus onto the trainer and respond very well. Cookie successfully dropped the tug while playing to go to 'place'. We suggest containing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her second session, Cookie focused on learning the new skill 'achoo' with repetitions within the classroom. To begin training this skill Cookie used shaping to pick a tissue out of a tissue box. Cookie interested with the box straight away, touching it with both her nose and paws. With some guidance she slowly began to pull a tissue out of the box. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her final session, Cookie focused on further developing her skill 'achoo' with repetitions within the classroom. In this session we began to condition Cookie dropping the tissue into the trainer’s hand. Cookie performed well, she slowly began to hold the tissue for longer periods and move herself while holding it. This skill requires many small aspects which we will slowly chain together, practicing at home is a great way to keep progressing with this skill.||Focus: Foundation||B|
