|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Fenna’s first session today we worked on her loose lead skills and had some fun in the confidence course. Fenna is very good with her loose lead, she did pull ahead a couple times but we changed direction and she quickly became more engaged with the trainer. We did this all the way down to the confidence course where we got her running around to burn some nervous energy. She quickly relaxed and was much more engaged for the walk back to the classroom!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: For her second session today we worked on her targeting skill. She was very distracted and talkative during this session and showed only slight interest in the target stick. However, she would look at it which we rewarded. By the end of the session she was making very slight head movements towards it but not every time. To work on this it needs to be repeated and any attempt she makes towards it needs to be rewarded.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Fenna’s last session today we worked on place and drop with lots of distractions. She did super well with place, the trainer was sweeping all around her, dancing, throwing balls and she didn’t break! Her drop was a bit different, she wasn’t taking treats by the last session so she didn’t really want to do drops however, when she did do it she did them really well! The trainer walked around her and she didn’t break until released! To work on this different distractions can be introduced, or even a different environment, just reduce expectations in a new environment! She did very well!||Focus: Distraction||B|
