|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his first session, Kong focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with repetitions under distractions (training outside with another dog in close proximity). We focused on this skill to continue proofing his drop and building his impulse control. Kong performed amazingly, he showed great engagement and ignored all distractions. The trainer was very impressed with how far he has progressed. Great work Kong!||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his second session, Kong focused on further developing his skill 'send to place' with repetitions under distractions (two bowls of food before in front of his place). We focused on this skill to further build his impulse control. Kong performed well, he was initially distracted by the food, but with some guidance he quickly began to walk past the food bowls onto place. Next time we would like to see Kong ignore the distractions on the first repetition. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Kong focused on learning the new skill 'targeting' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to build engagement and begin working on Kong earning his trick title. Kong performed well, he interacted with the spoon (target) straight away, booping it with his nose. Next time we would like to begin adding the verbal cue. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B+|

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