|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his first session, Diesel focused on further developing his skill 'chin rest' with repetitions and conditioning. We focused on this skill to help Diesel further understand the boundary of the 'chin rest'. Diesel performed very well, he placed his head in the trainer’s palm straight away, while in this position Diesel has great duration. As he was performing so well the trainer challenged him further, with beginning to touch Diesel across his body while in the chin rest. Diesel initially broke on the first repetition, but with some guidance be began to maintain it well. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his second session, Diesel focused on further developing his skill 'place' under high distractions whilst also reducing his vocalisation. Diesel performed well, he initially broke on the first repetition as there was four dogs training within the classroom and was showing challenging behaviours of vocalisation. With some guidance, he began to maintain it well and stop his vocalisation. Diesel remained on place quietly while multiple dogs walked pasted.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: In his final session Diesel focused on further developing his skill 'crate with repetitions and distance. Diesel performed well, he initially required a lure to go into the crate, but he quickly began to race into the crate and the lure was faded. The trainer began to send Diesel to the crate from variety of different distances, he successfully went to crate while his trainer was several meters away. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Distance||B|
