|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Lenny’s first session was charging his marker and place. We use the word yes when a dog does the right thing. Quickly followed by a treat. We must teach the dog, first, that yes means a treat. To do this we just say the word yes and give a treat. When Lenny had a grasp of this the trainer moved onto place. At first he was very hesitant to get on the bed but as the session progressed Lenny was getting onto the bed well and hoo long position with the trainer standing near him. Next time the trainer would like to add more distractions for Lenny.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Lenny’s second session was loose lead walking. This was done in the classroom but he still had a noisy dog distraction. It did take a little bit for Lenny to settle but everyone he pulled the trainer changed direction. By the end of the session Kenny was doing a fantastic job and even completing figure 8s well.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Play||Comment: The final session for Lenny was drop. However, he was very distracted and had no engagement with the trainer. After a couple of failed attempts the trainer decided to focus of engagement with Lenny. Using engagement games with treats Lenny settled more and was starting to engage. Next goal is to move in from these games and having Lenny focus fully at each session.||Focus: Repetition||X|

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
