Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Jamie’s first session we worked on his drop skill. This is an important skill for Jamie as it allows you to put him in a controlled position around distractions. We worked on getting Jamie to go into his drops faster and he did relatively well. If Jamie didn’t drop or start dropping as soon as he was asked he was told ‘uh uh’ and put into his drop. If he did go into his drop fast he was given a large reward. The next step for Jamie will be to continue working on speeding up his drops as he is improving but still has room for more improvement! Focus: Repetition B+
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: For Jamie’s second session we worked on his place skill using RLGL. This is really good for Jamie as it gets him all worked up and then asks him to relax on the bed. Jamie did really well with this and was going to place no matter the distance asked. Jamie did break a couple times throughout the session but with the use of ‘uh uh’ he corrected himself. The next step for Jamie will be to continue using RLGL with tennis balls to keep working on his impulse control and pushing his place skill. Focus: Distraction A
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: For Jamie’s last session we worked on his drop skill using tennis balls as a distraction. This is good because it pushes Jamie’s impulse control with his drop duration. Jamie did relatively well with holding his drop however there was one spot where he always broke if we bounced the tennis ball. We continued working on this and used ‘uh uh’ if he broke early. The next step for Jamie will be to continue working on his impulse control around tennis balls using his drop. Focus: Distraction B

We recommend your next step should be…
