|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: To start off Kali’s day he worked on his ‘drop’ skill, through red light green light. Kali did really well!! He dropped exactly when told and the trainer even tested him on his release word, saying things like ‘breakfast’, ‘barnacle’ and other ‘b’ words instead and he did not move unless it was ‘break’!! Keep up the awesome work with this at home, we would love for Kali to remain strong in this skill.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Exposure||Comment: Next up, Kali was taken to the cattery to work on conditioning him to cats. He was quite reactive towards the cat at first, so the trainer took him back and put him in a drop over a metre away. With frequent rewards, the trainer moved Kali closer to the cat and he was able to settle down right next to the condo! Yay!! If Kali seems to be stalking the cat at home, put him in a controlled position (drop, place, middles) to redirect the unwanted behaviour. Awesome work!!||Focus: Conditioning||X|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: To finish off, Kali worked on his ‘paws up’ skill, helping to build his confidence with it! He did SO well!! The trainer started him off with the inflatable pod and he smashed it. To test him a bit more, the trainer brought out 2 individual spiky pods and asked Kali to put a paw on each one and he absolutely nailed it! Kali has gotten so confident in placing his paws on things, it is great to see! Keep up the awesome work at home and test him with other objects that are elevated. The next step for Kali could be to get all 4 paws on individual pods and build his rear-end awareness at the same time. Brilliant work today, Kali!||Focus: Confidence||A|
