|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Kipi focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead' walking around people, dogs and a highly distracting environment. Kipi performed well, he was initially distracted by the stimulating environment. However, with some guidance and the use of 'drop' and 'spin' Kipi slowly began to redirect his focus. He can become quite distracted by cars and new people, he stops walking and shows no engagement. To help prevent these situations, we suggest continuing to practise this skill at home. Next time we hope to see Kipi show more engagement towards his trainer.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his second session, Kipi focused on relaxing within the classroom environment, kipi was initially unsettled in this session. The trainers believe the weather today may have impacted Kipi's behaviour. Focusing on place duration, kipi slowly began to relax within the classroom. As the session progress Kipi was relaxing and began to take treats from the trainer.||Focus: Conditioning||C|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In his final session, Kipi focused on conditioning a collar going on and off his neck. The trainers have noticed this can upset Kipi and cause his to display challenging behaviours. During this session, Kipi responded well when the trainer was moving the collar around the top of his neck. Once the trainer began to move the collar underneath or below his neck Kipi would display challenging behaviour. We suggest continuing to condition Kipi to taking his collar on and off at home.||Focus: Conditioning||D+|
