|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: The first session was focused on further developing Lexi's skill 'loose lead walking' with repetitions under distractions (training with Dexter in classroom). We focused on this skill to proof Lexi's loose lead under distractions and reduce her pulling. Lexi struggled with both engagement and loose lead throughout this session, she was very distracted by her environment. The trainer began to incorporate sit and drop while walking to help redirect her focus. Utilizing sit and drop helped Lexi focus and completed the session well. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her second session, Lexi focused on further developing her skill 'place' with duration and distractions (three dogs training within the classroom and name spelt in food). We focused on this skill to encourage Lexi to relax and settle in high distracting environments. Lexi performed very well, she broke place once, but with some guidance she maintained it well. She successfully remained on place while Dexter was soaking in front of her. Next time we would like to see Lexi not break place on first repetition. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her final session, Lexi focused on further developing her skill 'drop' with repetitions under distractions (training outside). We focused on this skill to proof her drop within a high distracting environment. Lexi performed very well, she did struggle of the first two repetitions but with some guidance began to maintain it well. Next time we would like to see Lexi remain engaged with her trainer despite distractions. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
