|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her first session, Freya focused on further developing her skill skateboard within the classroom. Freya interacts with the skateboard straight away, placing the front paws onto it. She can become over-excited and push the skateboard too quick, causing her to become unbalanced and not able to keep up. The trainer used their foot to hold the skateboard steady while she gets into the correct position, once ready the trainer slowly removes their foot a little to get her to take one step before bringing the skateboard back under control. This progressed well throughout the session, she was comfortable taking several steps before the trainer stopped the skateboard.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her second session, Freya focused on further developing her skill chin rest within the classroom. We focused on this skill to help when cleaning or looking at her eyes. Freya performed well, she quickly followed a lure to place her chin on the trainer's hand. When in the correct position she can struggle with duration but progressed well throughout the session. This would be a great skill to continue practicing at home.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her final session, Freya focused on further developing her skill drop with duration under distractions. We focused on this skill to build her duration and impulse control around food. In this session Freya was challenged with remaining in drop while the trainer wrote her name in kibble directly in front of her. Although she was interested in the food, she never broke drop.||Focus: Distraction||A|
