|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Holly’s first session was focused on her ‘emergency drop’ skill, focusing on getting her speed better while having a dog distraction around. Holly struggled to be quick with just the verbal cue, but responded much better when the hand signal was also used. Keep practicing this skill with her using a hand signal to help build the speed, which we can then begin to fade out over time. Good work, Holly!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Next up, Holly began to learn her ‘roll over’ trick, focusing on the foundation. Holly struggled quite a lot with this skill. She follows a lure nicely onto her side, but has difficulty understanding that she needs to roll onto her back and often hops up. Keep practicing this skill at home, make sure the lure is right on her nose and you are pulling it over her shoulder. It will take some time and practice!||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: To finish the day, Holly worked on learning her ‘paws up’ skill, focusing on building her confidence with it as she was quite nervous around our wobble board. With the use of many treats and words of encouragement, Holly was able to get 1 (sometimes 2) paw/s on it! Keep practicing this skill at home and you can utilise any household item; pots, pans, boxes etc to help growing her confidence!||Focus: Confidence||C+|

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