|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Kong focused on further developing his 'loose lead ' walking with repetitions under high distractions (training outside with another dog in close proximity). Kong was initially distracted by the environment and struggled to engage with her trainer. The trainer introduced 'drop' to help redirect his focus. This helped Kong engage with his trainer in the high distraction environment. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home in a low distracting environment.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: In his second session, Kong focused on further developing his skill 'spin' with repetitions under distractions (training inside the classroom while three other dogs were training). We focused on this skill to proof his spins. Kong was initially distracted by the classroom environment and struggled to follow a lure. However, with some guidance he quickly began to redirect his focus. Once engaged Kong performed very well, he ignored all distractions. We suggest continue to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Kong focused on further developing his skill 'send to place' with repetitions and distance. We focused on this skill to further build his distance when sending to place. Kong performed well, he knows the verbal cue 'place' well, and will go straight to the bed. He did begin to struggle when the trainer increased the distance. But with some guidance he began to go to 'place' despite the trainer’s distance. He successfully when to place from 5 meters away. We suggest continue to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distance||B+|
