|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his first session, Hank focused on learning the new skill 'place' with repetitions with the classroom. We focused on this skill to begin conditioning the reward marker 'yes', release word 'break', as well as building his impulse control. Hank performed very well, he hopped straight onto the bed. When on place he has good duration, but can break quickly for small distractions. With some guidance and lots of treats he quickly began to maintain it well. Next time we would like to begin challenging him with distance. We suggest continuing to charge his reward marker at home, simply say 'yes' followed by a treat.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Hank focused on learning the new skill 'drop' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to further build his impulse control and duration. Hank initially struggle to follow a lure into the drop position. Once Hank settled, he began to take treats and follow a lure under the trainers’ leg into a drop. The trainer completed several repetitions on this, each time the lure was reduced more and more. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Hank focused on relaxing around another dog within close proximity, we used 'place' to help him relax. We focused on this skill to condition dogs with relaxation. Hank performed very well, he was interested in the dog but remained calm and on place. Next time we would like to increase to dog distraction around him.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
