|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In the first session, Kipi was unsettled and displaying nervous behaviours in the classroom environment, the trainer went back to basics of conditioning, encouraging Kipi to relax and be calm in the classroom. Kipi responded very well to the conditioning, he was taking treats and slowly began to relax and offer behaviors such as sit. Next time the trainer would like to see Kipi be more comfortable within the classroom.||Focus: Conditioning||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his second session, Kipi focused on further developing his skill ‘place’ under distraction (two dogs training within the classroom). We focused on this skill to help Kipi settle an relax in the classroom environment, and around the other dogs. Kipi performed very well, he slowly began to settle and relax despite the big distractions. While on place he did not break for the whole session. Next time the trainer would like to see Kipi settle into the environment quicker. We suggest continuing to practise this skill home.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: The third session was focused on introducing Kipi to the new skill 'paws up' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to help improve Kipi’s confidence surrounding new objects. Kipi was initially hesitant to touch the step, but with some guidance and patients he began to put his paws on it. Kipi progressed very well throughout the remainder of the session, the trainer began to fade the lure and add the verbal cue 'paws up'. Next time the trainer hopes to introduce a new object for Kipi to step on. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Confidence||B|
