|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building)||Comment: For Elaine's first session she was very distracted and not taking treats. The trainer tried getting Elaine to do some skills that Elaine was good at, however she was to distracted. The trainer decided to take Elaine to the confidence course. This was well received by Elaine and she was happy to run around it with her trainer.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Elaine was much more focused and taking treats for her second session. As such the trainer introduced a new skill for Elaine. Chin. This is where Elaine needs to rest her chin in the trainer's hand. This is a handy skill to have for situations like the vet. Where the dog can do this and be treated while the vet does what they need to do. Elaine really engaged with the trainer during this and was very vocal as she got frustrated trying to work out what she needed to do. It was fantastic to she her working through it. By the end of the session she was working out what she needed to do. This is another easy skill to practice at home. Put your hand out, palm up and lure Elaine with food on the other side of your hand, until her chin is in your hand. Then yes and reward.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Conditioning Elaine to a hoop was her final session. She was very wary of the hoop to start with and it took a while to just get her to come close to the hoop. However as the session progressed Elaine was starting to be lured through the hoop. As Elaine gets more confident with this, the hoop can be raised until she is jumping through it. Elaine did a great job and as always it was fun to work with her.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
