|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: For Jamie’s first session we worked on his engagement. This is good to increase Jamie’s focus on you rather than his surrounding environment. To begin the session Jamie was put onto place to settle for a couple of minutes as he got quiet worked up from a loud dog in the classroom. After Jamie had settled onto place he was released and we started the game. The engagement game consisted of throwing a treat across the floor every time Jamie made eye contact with the trainer. The treat would be throw in the opposite direction to where Jamie was standing and he would have to turn away from the trainer to retrieve it. This forces Jamie to turn away from the trainer and as a result turn back if he wanted to be rewarded. Jamie started off by hardly making eye contact however towards the end he would turn around straight away to make eye contact with the trainer.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Jamie’s second session we worked on his drop skill. This skill is good as it puts them into a controlled position around distractions. This session was spent trying to speed up Jamie’s drop. While Jamie does take awhile to get into his drop we more focused on the time between when asked to drop and when he starts to drop rather than how slow he was going into his drop once started. Jamie’s biggest time consumer what that he would often walk to the front of the trainer instead of dropping where he was standing when asked. Therefore if Jamie went to move from the spot he was asked to drop in he was corrected and put into his drop back on that spot. The next step for Jamie will be to get him to drop in the same spot he was asked to drop in.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Jamie’s last session we worked on his loose lead outside. This is a good skill for walking them without pulling. Jamie did really well on the concrete so we moved to the grass area. Jamie’s concentration did decrease abit however for majority of the time he was showing some good loose lead walking. When Jamie got distracted he would pull however he was told ‘uh uh’ and the trainer would turn away from the distraction. The next step for Jamie will be to continue working on his loose lead on the grassed area.||Focus: Distraction||B+|

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