|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Kobe’s first session was loose lead walking. The trainer did this in the classroom at first and using treats to lure Kobe as well as changing direction frequently Kobe’s engagement was fantastic. However once outside even the treats couldn’t get Kobe’s focus back. Once back in the classroom Kobe got his focus back on the trainer. He did get distracted by someone coming in wearing a hoodie. The trainer put Kobe on place and Kobe broke a few times and also barked. The trainer kept Kobe on place until he was able to stay on the bed again with the trainer moving around him. Keep pushing those distractions at home to push Kobe, to help him resist those distractions.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Kobe’s second session was drops outside. With leave it. Kobe did well to get into position but was starting to crawl towards the good smells. The trainer used the yes marker and treats to stop that happening. Kobe was very keen for the animal droppings and the trainer used the leave it to help Kobe learn to come away from the droppings but he did struggle! He likes the droppings better than the fritz! This would be an exercise to be done when he hasnt eaten so that the treats hold more value! Kobe’s duration for the drops outside was fantastic, with minimal trainer moment. At home practice in the front yard and slowly increase the distractions||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Kobe’s final session was place. He is always excited to go to place and he is progressing well with resisting distractions while on place. But there are still somethings that make him break! The trainer blew bubbles for Kobe while he was in place and Kobe was very keen to investigate. The trainer increased the frequency treats and by the end of the session, although still interested he was remembering the job he had to do!||Focus: Distraction||B|

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
