|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: We started off Eddie’s day with loose lead walking in the cattery. This big brave boy went on this new surface with no dramas, yay!!! At first Eddie was again hesitant to go onto the classroom floor, but with lots of encouragement and excitement he overcame it and got lots of cuddles and treats as a reward for his bravery. We then transitioned into the cattery where he also performed his ‘drop’ skill. Eddie did extremely well and dropped exactly when told, however, he would try and break the skill without being released if you were to take a few steps away. We want Eddie to keep progressing in this skill so he is able to hold his drop, not matter what we are doing.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: Next up, Eddie was introduced to his ‘middles’ skill. At first he was a bit hesitant to go in between my legs, but once he realised treats were waiting for him on the other side, he quickly complied. We started off with just getting him used to walking behind us and then throw the treat ahead of him so he walked through our legs comfortably. After he got used to that, we then would catch him in between our legs with another treat and lure him into a sit position. Eddie is such a quick learner so we were able to move onto different angles and distances with just the verbal cue! We want Eddie to keep exceeding with this skill so he is able to perform it from greater distances, angles and in higher distracting environments. Well done Eddie!||Focus: Distance||B+|
|Skill learnt: Play||Comment: To finish Eddie’s eventful day, his last session was focused on play in the classroom, so he has a positive experience in the environment that has those scary, slippery floors! Eddie was a little hesitant again at first, but perked up more once the tennis ball was brought out. Although he was not as excited for the ball like he usually is, plenty of cuddles and physical play kept him happy and waggy. We want to keep giving Eddie more positive experiences in the classroom so he does not show any hesitation about the floor in the future.||Focus: Confidence||B+|
