|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Freddie’s first session today we worked on his drop skill outside and in the classroom. He was very excited to get started so we needed to find a way to help him channel his energy and focus on his training. We worked on his drops in the classroom first, this was a challenge for him as there were two other dogs working near him. Once he was in position he held it really well. He was quite vocal and was telling everyone how he felt but he didn’t stand up. We moved outside where it was a bit more difficult for him and he just wanted to follow his nose, we had to use our foot brake (standing on the lead) so when he would try to stand up it would correct him so he would have to lay back down. To work on this further it just needs practice in different environments.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Freddie’s second session today we worked on his place skill in the classroom. The first half we focused on red-light-green-light again with the tug toy to get him excited and then sent him to place to calm down. He really enjoys this and did really well, he just needs to work on letting go of the toy quicker. The second half of the session was focusing on place duration with dog distractions. He did really well with this, he broke a couple times when the trainer was on the other side of the room so we lessened the distance. He did pretty good with this, he just needs practice and a little more self control which comes in time.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his last session today we worked on Freddie’s loose lead walking in the classroom. He showed some good engagement for some of the session but would also get very distracted by different smells on the floor. By the end of the session he was more engaged on the trainer and showed some good progress. This needs lots of practice in environments with little/no distractions and slowly built up to going outside with all the worldly distractions. He did pretty good and is showing some promising progress.||Focus: Distraction||C+|

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