|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: In her first session, kimchi focused on further developing her skill 'loose lead' walking with repetitions while in the high distracting outside environment. We focused on this skill to build engagement and reduce her challenging behaviour of pulling. Kimchi was initially distracted by the environment and struggled to engage with her trainer. But with some guidance and the use of 'drop' she slowly began to redirect his focus. Once engaged Kimchi performs well.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session, Kimchi focused on further developing her skill 'drop' with repetitions under distractions. The trainers have noticed Kimchi's biggest distraction is people, today we challenged her with the trainer moving away, around, over and next to her, while she remains in drop. She initially struggled to remain in drop, but with some guidance she quickly began to maintain it well. This would be a great exercise to practice at home, using yourself as a distraction.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her final session, Kimchi focused on further developing her skill 'send to place' while utilising the training game red light, green light. We focused on this skill to proof her place while excited and highly aroused. Kimchi loves to play! While playing she responds very well to the verbal cue 'place', she will drop the toy and run to her bed. This is a great skill to practise at home, especially with her place and drop.||Focus: Obedience||A|
