|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his first session, Dexter focused on further developing his skill 'drop' utilising the training game red light, green light. We used this skill to encourage Dexter to become excited, then ask for a controlled position. Dexter performed very well, he loves to play but continued to respond to the verbal cue 'drop'. We suggest continuing to practice this game at home to further proof his drops.||Focus: Obedience||A|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his second session, Dexter focused on further developing his skill ‘loose lead’ walking while in a high distracting environment, this environment included walking outside in close proximity to two other dogs (one being Lexi). Dexter performed well, he showed good engagement with his trainer. Drops were used to continue and build engagement. Dexter did began do get tired during this session and slow down to behind the trainer.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Dexter focused on learning the new skill ‘middle’ with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to begin building a recall and build confidence. Dexter performed well, he did initially struggle to follow a lure through the trainers legs. However, with some guidance he quickly began follow the lure straight threw. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
