|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In his first session, Kipi focused on conditioning both his crate within the classroom and the kennel areas. We focused on this skill to improve Kipi's confidence surrounding these areas. Kipi performed well, although unsure he continued to enter both his crate and the kennel run. The trainer spent time also conditioning kipi's reward marker 'yes' to help further condition these areas.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: In his second session, Kipi focused on further conditioning the muzzle. We focused on this skill to build his confidence surrounding the muzzle. Kipi performed very well, the trainer began by placing the strap over Kipi's head (muzzle going under his chin). This was to help kipi understand each aspect of the Muzzle is good and not scary (see picture). Kipi responded well, he continued to take treats and be confident. After several repetitions the trainer was able to place the muzzle on, over one ear while he remained calm. This is huge progress for Kipi, the trainers are very proud. When training this at home, kipi should be on lead and on place. Spend lots of time conditioning.||Focus: Conditioning||B+|

We focused on this skill as Kipi had a big week and was begin to tire. Kipi performed very well, he did not been place despite the high distractions.||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
