|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Dyson did well with his drops. He needed a clear command and hand signal but no food lure needed. Was able to stay in for a duration with slight distractions. One negative behaviour we did have from him was that he would snap to get the food out of your hands when giving treats however after adjusting the technique in which treats were handed to him he improved.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: He did well with his place skill today and we were able to use food distractions. He had to have the food plates a meter away from the bed as he struggled when they were closer. There were multiple times that you could see would him think about going to the food but resisted the temptation.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: He did really well in his loose lead with good engagement. It took him about a minute to understand but after was very good, left side and right side turns were both good as well. Was even able to walk past multiple distractions (food and toys) without him pulling.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
