|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Frankie's first session today we pushed his place skill with lots of distractions. We used tennis balls, dancing trainers, running trainers and lots of different toys! He broke a couple times for the tennis balls but quickly learnt that if he stays on place anyway he gets a treat and also released to play with it afterwards. He really struggled with the people distraction and broke a couple times to say hello to the trainer so we lessened the intensity of squeaky voices used to tempt him. To work on this, people distractions obviously need to be introduced slowly!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his second session today we worked on his drop skill outside. He did very well with this however, as soon as some people were in sight he really struggled to focus on staying in position. To improve this, his drop skill should be practiced in low level environments and people can be introduced slowly as he is such a friendly boy and wants to say hi!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his last skill today we practiced his loose lead skill outside. He was a bit distracted to start with but quickly got into the swing of things. He showed the trainer some great engagment and only pulled to sniff something a couple times. When he did this the trainer stopped, waited for engagement and then allowed him to sniff as the reward. From what he showed his loose lead walking is pretty good, the next step for him would be distractions, especially people!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
