|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Kong's first session we worked on his engagement with loose lead in a distracting environment. This was performed outside with 3 other dog distractions nearby (one of them being Mojo in training). Although he is good on lead, he lacks focus and engagement with the trainer and struggled to follow with any turns she performed. To aid him with this, the trainer increased his marker when he was engaging with her and lured during turns. He did really well considering the distractions and they ended the session with a dunk in the fountain.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Kong can be a little distracted to follow through with his drops. This skill is an important safety skill that should be used regularly when he's playing with Mojo. This session focused on sending Kong in and out of drops and fading the lure to a verbal cue. He was absolutely exhausted by the end of this session but was rewarded with a big cuddle. His engagement improved this session and he was not as distracted with Mojo nearby. Well done!||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: To further work on Kong's engagement and redirecting his focus, the training worked on the skill spin. He really struggled with this skill and although he was following the lure, he couldn't quite work out how to move his body in that direction. With patience and encouragement from the trainer he completed a spin 4 times by the end of the session. This skill would be great to focus on at home! Yoga for Kong!||Focus: Foundation||C+|
