|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For this session we worked on Kipi's drop in the classroom with another dog present. Kipi was fantastic at this today! He started taking treats early in the session, was engaged with the trainer and didn't break with food and toy distractions. We even had him walking between plates of food then asking for a drop and he didn't try to eat any of the kibble. His drop is very good (he was quite quick getting into the drop today) and he drops with just the verbal command. Next time we'd like to push it a little further with higher distractions as he did so well today. Keep up the good work at home with his drops around distractions.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: For this session we continued work on Kipi's targeting as he was showing much better engagement today than last time we attempted it. He absolutely smashed it today, choosing to move forward to target the wooden spoon several times with no hesitation which is such a huge improvement and we were so proud of the increase in his confidence here. Next time we'd like to continue work and get him to start targeting other objects to continue his confidence building. At home use trick training to get Kipi engaged for his training sessions.||Focus: Repetition||A|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: As the weather cooled we took Kipi outside for his loose lead session. On the pavement his loose lead was fantastic but he did lose some focus when we transferred to walking on the grassed area. Near the end of the session there were some added distractions of cars arriving for dog pick ups - he looked at the people and dogs but didn't react which was really good. Next time we'd like to continue his loose lead outside as much as possible so that he is prepared for outside distractions. At home, continue the great loose lead training and use grassy patches where possible to get him used to keeping engagement and focus with the smells and distractions of grass.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
