|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her first session, Lady focused on further developing her 'drop' skill under distraction (greetings). We focused on this skill to help reduce Lady's jumping. Lady performed well, she initially broke drop twice when the trainer approached very excitable, but with some guidance she began to maintain it well. Lady was successfully completing this session while five other dogs were in the classroom. Next time we would like to see Lady remain in drop despite these distractions. We suggest continuing to practise and focus on her drops at home.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her second session, Lady focused on learning ‘how to ride a skateboard’ with repetitions. We focused on this skill to build engagement. Lady performed very well, she interacted with the skate board instantly. She requires a lure to place both front paws on the skateboard, however as the session progressed she slowly began to walk while on the skateboard. Next time the trainer would like to begin fading the lure.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her final session, Lady focused on learning the new skill 'bell' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to challenge Lady’s brain while giving her body a rest (she was struggling with the heat). Lady performed very well, she interacted with the bell immediately, touching with her nose. With some guidance, she quickly began to ring the bell. Next time we would like to encourage Lady to touch the bell with her paw.||Focus: Foundation||B|
