|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: In his first session, Jaxx focused on learning the new skill 'middle' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to help build his confidence and as a safety skill. Jaxx performed very well, he followed treats to walk through the trainers legs. After several repetitions of walking through the trainers legs, the trainer began to stop Jaxx when in the correct position (standing in between the trained legs, look up). We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: In his second session, Jaxx focused on further developing his skill 'targeting' with repetitions, within the classroom. We focused on this skill to help improve Jaxx's confidence surrounding new objects. Jaxx performed very well, he interacted with the spoon straight away, touching it with his nose. Jaxx continued to touch the spoon well throughout the session. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Jaxx focused on learning the new skill 'around' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to help build engagement, increase his confidence and begin working on recall. Jaxx was initially unsure about the cone, the trainer conditioned the cone with treats. Slowly Jaxx became more confident and would follow a line of treats around the cone. This was slowly faded into a lure. Jaxx struggled with this skill, but slowly began to build his confidence. We suggest continuing to train Jaxx around different objects at home.||Focus: Confidence||C+|
