|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: The first session for Finn was a little loose lead walking from the kennel to the classroom and then place. His loose lead walking was actually pretty good walking to the classroom. However once in the classroom he was very distracted by the other dogs. The trainer put Finn on place but he continued to hop off and barking at times. The trainer used the uh uh and yes markers to help Finn learn that he needed to stay on place. Towards the end of the session he was much calmer on place.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: The next session with Finn was drop. He started well with this although his duration wasn’t strong, so the trainer worked on this and he progressed well. At times he lost focus and barked. But the trainer kept bringing Finn’s focus back to her. The barking is not just at dogs but appears to be more an excitement thing. As at times he barked randomly but not looking at dogs. This is where working on his obedience skills is so important. He needs strong boundaries and obedience.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Loose lead walking was the final session for Finn. However, upon coming out of the crate he was extremely excited and started barking again at the other dogs. The trainer got him in a sit and every time Finn looked at the dog the trainer yes and rewarded him. But when the trainer spoke to the other trainer Finn started getting distracted again. Once getting his focus back again the trainer then did loose lead walking outside. He was distracted slightly by smells but he was pretty good. It will still be a work in progress with Finn but he loves to learn so we need to make sure we fill that need.||Focus: Distraction||C+|

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
