|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her first session, Lady focused on further developing her skill 'drop' with repetitions under high distractions (human, ball and dog movement). Lady performed well, she broke on the first two repetition when the trainer spoke in a high pitched voice. But with some guidance she quickly began to maintain it well. Next time we would like to see Lady not break drop. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her second session, Lady focused on further developing her skill 'loose lead walking' with repetitions and distractions (dogs, food and people). Lady performed very well, she was initially distracted by the environment but with some guidance she quickly redirected her focus. Once engaged lady performed very well, the trainer used 'spin' to help keep her engagement.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her final session, Lady focused on learning the new skill 'button’ with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to challenge her shaping and problem-solving skills. Lady performed well, she interacted with the button straight away (touching it with her nose). With some guidance she slowly began to touch the button with her paw. By the end of the session the trainer began adding the verbal cue 'button ' as she was performing so well.||Focus: Foundation||B|
