|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his first session, Hudson focused on further developing his skill place within the busy classroom (another dog training nearby). We focused on this skill to build his impulse control and condition him to other dogs. Hudson performed well, he quickly jumped onto the bed, he can struggle to hold duration but this is expected as this is a new skill. As the session progressed she began to hold his duration well, the trainer began to challenge him with distance. He initially broke place but with some guidance began to maintain it well.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: In his second session, Hudson focused on learning the new skill spin within the classroom. We focused on this skill to build his engagement towards his recall. Hudson initially struggled to follow the lure around in a 360-degree circle. However, as the session progressed he began to perform well. After several repetitions, he was following the lure like a champ. The trainer was able to slowly begin reducing the lure while he continued to perform well.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his final session, Hudson focused on further developing his skill loose lead around dog distractions. We focused on this skill to build his engagement, reduce his challenging behaviour of pulling and continue conditioning him to dogs. Hudson was initially distracted by the dog walking nearby, he did react (bark) at the dog once at the beginning of this session. The trainer went back to basics with a lure to help redirect his focus. This worked well, he began to show good engagement and ignore the other dog.||Focus: Distraction||B|

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