|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 around the cattery and classroom. Jamie was initially distracted but when the trainer introduced the tennis ball as his reward, he began to redirect his focus and perform well. He was interested in the cats and birds in the cattery but showed no signs of reactivity. He did lose engagement when walking past the other animals but continued to perform well.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill drop around bird distractions. When the birds made nose, he became very distracted and lost all engagement. The trainer increased the distance between Jamie and the birds, this helped him redirect his focus and respond to the drop command. As the session progressed, he continued to perform well and was able to move closer to the birds, while continuing to respond to commands.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: In his final session, Jamie focused on further conditioning to the muzzle. Jamie quickly follows the treats inside the muzzle, he does struggle with duration. Jamie progressed well throughout the session, the trainer was able to put the muzzle on and play with him. When there is a tennis ball involved Jamie is not bothered by anything else, muzzle included.||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
