|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her first session, Cookie focused on further developing her skill 'loose lead' walking with repetitions under high distractions (training outside while, car, people and dogs walk past). We focused on this skill to help reduce her challenging behaviour of pulling. Cookie was initially distracted by the environment and struggle to remain calm and not pull. With some guidance and the use of 'spin' and 'drop' she slowly began to redirect her focus. Once engaged Cookie performed well, however she can lose focus quickly when additional distractions are added.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her second session, Cookie focused on learning the new skill 'orbit' within repetitions. We focused on this as a new fun skill for Cookie to learn. Orbit is where the dog walks backwards around the owner in a circle. Cookie began with standing on the trainers left side, then she was lured back and around the trainer (till she was standing directly behind the trainer). Cookie performed well, she followed a lure around to the desired position. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her final session, Cookie focused on further developing her skill 'Jenga' with repetitions while outside. We focused on this skill to ensure Cookie understands the basics and fundamentals. Cookie initially required some encouragement from her trainer to interact with the jenga set, but she quickly remembered her past sessions and was picking up the blocks well. When practising this skill Cookie can lose focus quickly when people are around.||Focus: Foundation||B|
