|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: For his first session Krishna played the red light green light game. This game is a great tool to teach Krish to stop what he is doing instantly. Perfect to utilise in an emergency but also fun to play at home. Grab his favourite toy and rev him up and have some fun. Then at random give Krish the drop command or place. Then once he is in the required position give the release command start the game again. Krish did well at this but the trainer found it hard to find something to really excite him. So when at home find that one thing that he loves and use that.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his second session the trainer wanted to work on Krishna’s drops. Because Krish has a good knowledge of this skill the trainer went into the boarding kennels to really put Krish to the test. Krish dropped well but didn’t want to hold the position for long. However by the end of the session Krish was doing extremely well. His engagement on the trainer was on point and even with dogs barking around him, by the end Krish was holding his drops for as long as he was required to. Well done Krish.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: For the third session the trainer wanted to teach Krish the spin trick. However, using food to lure Krish around excited him to the point that when he took the treat he was very rough. The trainer then took the time to get Krish to take a treat a bit more gently. This is important for Krish to learn as it can sometimes be quite painful when a dog is to rough taking a treat. This is something that you can work on at home very easily. The trainer continued to work on the spin trick with Krishna. Once he settled down into the task and wasn’t as excited over the treats Krish did well, but the trainer would like to develop this skill further with Krish next time.||Focus: Repetition||C|
