|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Jamie focused on further developing his loose lead by walking around distractions, including people, dogs and tennis balls. Jamie performs very well with people distractions, he was initially a little distracted by the dog but redirected his focus quickly. As he was performing so well the trainer challenged him further with tennis balls on the ground where he was walking. This was very difficult for Jamie, he initially pulled toward them and struggled to show engagement. However, as the session progressed, he began to redirect his focus and perform well. Jamie also successfully ignored another dog who was barking at him and continued to walk.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Jamie focused on further developing his drop under distractions, including people, dogs and tennis balls. The trainers know Jamie loves tennis balls, what a better distraction than this. While in drop he initially struggled to hold position when the balls were bouncing, however, with some guidance he began to perform well. When staring this the trainer was across the other side of the room, at this distance he could see the ball but continue to maintain his drop. As he progressed, we decreased the distance.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: In his final session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill middle, working on fading the lure. When initially working on this skill Jamie required a lure to go into position. However, as the session progressed, he was performing so well that the trainer began to fade the lure and add the verbal cue. Jamie responded well, continuing to move into the position.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
