|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: The first session was focused on further developing Kipi’s skill place, focusing on distance and distractions within the classroom. Kipi performed very well, he ignored the distractions (two birds boarding) and showed good engagement with his trainer. As he was performing so well the trainer was able to quickly increase the distance from the bed, Kipi continued going to place despite the trainer being on the other side of the room. This is a great skill to continue practicing at home with both low and high distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: The second session was focused on building on his ‘drop’ skill with repetitions under distraction (training outside). We focused on this skill to better improve his decision making when in challenging scenarios. Kipi did very well, he did struggle to go into drop on the first two repetitions, but with some guidance was able to maintain it well, even with the high distracting environment. Next time we would like to see Kipi go straight into drop on the first two repetitions. We suggest continuing to practice this at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In his final session, Kipi focused on further building his confidence around new objects including a skateboard. Kipi would happily eat treats off the skateboard but was hesitant to place his paws on it. With some guidance and lots of treats he slowly began to touch the skateboard for a couple of seconds. During this session Kipi did show signs of reactivity towards the trainer when being touched on his side, however he responded very well to the ‘drop’ command to help him relax. We suggest you focus on conditioning touch at home with kipi.||Focus: Confidence||D|
