|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 under high distractions. We focused on this skill to build engagement and reduce his challenging behaviour of pulling. While training outside he was initially distracted by another dog training in close proximity. With some guidance and the use or 'drop' and 'sit' Jamie redirected his focus back onto the trainer. Once engaged Jamie performed very well, the trainer was blown away by his performance. We suggest utilising known skills such as sit and drop to help redirect or maintain his engagement.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Jamie focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with repetitions under distractions. We focused on encouraging Jamie to drop on the left side of his trainer. Jamie performed well, when in an open space he can struggle to drop in the desired position, however when there is a wall or object close by he performs well. After several repetition close to the wall, Jamie successfully drops in the correct position, responding only to the verbal cue 'drop'. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Jamie focused on learning the new skill 'touch' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to build engagement and for Jamie to have fun. Jamie performed very well, he touched the spoon straight away, with his nose and paw. With some guidance he quickly began to only touch the spoon with his nose. He was performing so well the trainer began to move the spoon around, while he continued to touch the spoon.||Focus: Foundation||A|
