|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, kimchi focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead walking' with repetitions under distractions (training outside). We focused on this skill to reduce Kimchi's pulling. Kimchi performed very well, he was initially distracted by the outside environment but with some guidance his focus quickly. To help keep Kimchi engaged the trainer began to incorporate sit and drop while walking. Next time we would like Kimchi to remain focused despite distractions. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Kimchi focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with repetitions under distractions (training within the classroom while multiple dogs were training). We focused on this skill to build Kimchi's impulse control and proof his drop. Kimchi performed amazingly, he remains engaged with his trainer despite distractions. The trainer slowly reduced the lure to a hand signal with the verbal cue 'drop', his duration is good. The trainer was blown away with his progress from his last session. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Kimchi focused on further developing his skill 'send to place' with repetitions and distractions (10 bowls of high and low value treats). We focused on this skill to build Kimchi's impulse control as well as proofing his place. Kimchi performed well, he was initially distracted by the food on the first two repetitions, but with some guidance he quickly began to maintain it well. Next time would like Kimchi to remain engaged with his trainer despite distractions. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
