|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: The first session was focused on further developing and proofing Lady’s skill drop with greetings within the classroom. Lady performs well with her drops, she knows the verbal cue and has great duration. The trainer challenged Lady with greetings, with repetitions of walking, running and approaching her in a variety of different and fun ways. On the first two repetitions Lady broke her drop, with some guidance she quickly began to remain in her drop no matter how the trainer approached. Next time the trainer would like to see lady not break on the first two repetitions. This is a great skill to practice at home.||Focus: Distraction||C-|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: This session was focused on further developing Lady’s skill ‘Place’ using ‘send to place’ with distractions and repetitions to help proof her skill. The distractions began small with a couple of toys across her path to the bed, as she was performing so well at this level the trainer increased the distractions to a bucket full of toys across the floor and multiple food bowls. On the first repetitions Lady looked at all the new distractions but continued to go to place. For the remainder of this session Lady was engaged and ignored all the distractions. Continuing to practise send to place at home would be a great exercise.||Focus: Foundation||C-|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: The third session was focused on introducing Lady to the new skill ‘rug roll’ to help build her engagement. The trainer began by placing treats in a yoga mat and rolling it up, the treats encourage Lady to roll the mat open. Lady was a natural at this skill, she loved rolling out the mat. She still requires treats inside the mat to roll it out but the amount of treats was reduced throughout this session. This is a fun trick to train with Lady on a warm day or to just keep her brain busy.||Focus: Back to Basics||C-|
