|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead' walking with repetitions while outside in a high distracting environment. We focused on this skill to build engagement and to reduce his pulling. Jamie performed well, he was initially distracted by the environment but quickly began to redirect his focus onto the trainer. Once engaged Jamie performed well, he ignored all distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with repetitions within the classroom (another dog training in close proximity). We focused on this skill to help Jamie ‘drop’ on the left side of his handler, rather than in front. Jamie performed well, he initially dropped in front of his trainer, but with some guidance and the use of a wall to block one side, he began to drop in the desired position. After several repetitions the trainer was able to move further away from the wall while he continued to drop on the side. We suggest continuing to practise this skill to home, using a wall to assist him if needed (see pics).||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill 'send to place' with repetitions under distractions. We focused on this skill to proof his place. Jamie performed amazingly, he ignored all food and ball distractions and went straight to his bed. The trainer was very impressed with his performance throughout this session. Keep up the great work at home.||Focus: Distraction||A|
