|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Hazel’s first session was a combination of door manners, classroom conditioning and loose lead walking. Hazel was very excited to be heading out with one of the trainers and was jumping. The trainer spent quite a bit of time encouraging and waiting for Hazel to be calm better exiting and door or gateways. The trainer worked a little on Hazel’s loose lead walking on the way to the classroom. However, Hazel was to distracted and was pulling and walking all over the place. Once in the classroom Hazel lost her confidence in the new environment and was very wary and distracted. At this point Hazel wasn’t able to learn anything as she was to distracted. As such the trainer felt Hazel would benefit from the confidence course.||Focus: Conditioning||X|
|Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building)||Comment: Apart from being initially hesitant Hazel did really well around the confidence course. Hazel was a little nervous about the pool noodles hanging overhead. But a little encouragement had Hazel running through as long as the trainer kept up! The confidence course allows Hazel to experience success and gain confidence. This means that she feels better equipped to tackle other things or environments that she maybe nervous of. Awesome work Hazel.||Focus: Repetition||X|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Last up for Hazel was place. This skill will help Hazel learn to self settle. This will enable Hazel to have a place to relax and watch the world go by. Hazel did struggle to settle into the session and was jumping quite a lot. However by the end of the session Hazel started to settle better and focus more on the trainer. This meant she started learning better. Going forward it will be good to see Hazel settle quicker and engage more.||Focus: Repetition||C|
