|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her first session, Lexi focused on further developing her skill 'chin rest' with repetitions under duration. We focused on this skill to build engagement. Lexi performed well, she initially required a lure to place her chin on the trainer’s hand, but with some guidance, this lure was reduced. Once engaged Lexi performed well, she has good durations. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In her second session, Lexi focused on learning the new skill 'back up' with repetitions. We focused on this skill to begin teaching Lexi 'Orbit'. Lexi struggle to follow a lure to walk backwards, she would 'sit' or 'drop' instead. With some guidance, patience and treats she slowly began to redirect her focus onto the trainer and follow the lure to walk backwards. Lexi successfully took two steps back several times.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her final session, Lexi focused on further developing her skill 'drop' with repetitions, using the training exercise red light, green light. We focused on this skill to proof her drops, while highly aroused. Lexi performed very well, she loves to play, but continues to respond well to the verbal cue 'drop'. She can become over excited and struggle to hold duration when in drop, but with some guidance she began to maintain it well.||Focus: Obedience||B+|
