|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Jamie’s first session we worked on his drops as he came into the classroom very overworked. This skill is important as it allows you to put him in a controlled position around other dogs. Jamie struggled with his drops to begin with as he wasn’t going into them when asked. We let Jamie settle into his drop for a minute and once he had calmed down we start to work on repetition and increase his speed into drop. We worked on using a the couch as a barrier so he had to drop to the trainers side and wasn’t able to walk around to the front. Jamie was doing well and started to drop on the side.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Jamie’s second session we continued to work on his drops as he was doing well. During this session we would use the couch for one drop and then turn and ask him to drop without a barrier for the next. If Jamie dropped on the side without a barrier he was given a handful of treats while if he moved to the front he was only given one piece of kibble. The next step for Jamie will be to continue getting him more comfortable with dropping on the side so he drops faster than when he walks to the front of the trainer.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: For Jamie’s last session we worked on his muzzle conditioning. This is important to get Jamie more comfortable wearing a muzzle. Jamie started off well and was offering his face into the muzzle. He did well for the first half of the session and then after half of the session his focus was completely lost. No matter what noises the trainer made he wouldn’t turn to focus. Jamie’s engagement was very poor and he had switched off so the trainer instead put him into his drop to hold his duration. The next step for Jamie will be to continue working on conditioning the muzzle however he really needs to work on improving his engagement.||Focus: Conditioning||X|
