|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her first session we worked on Lexi's loose lead skill. We took her just outside the classroom on the enclosed pavement area to help with her focus. She did really well on the paved path - she only needed the occasional light pull to redirect her and gave really good engagement throughout. We did try for a fee minutes on the grass but this proved to be too distracting for Lexi so we returned to the pavement. Next time we'd like to get her to focus on the trainer while in the more open grassy area as this will help build both her skill and her confidence. At home keep up the great work and start raising the distraction level for her with added toys or other distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For her second session we worked on the skateboard trick skill with Lexi. Lexi was so impressive with this! She showed a great level of confidence with the skateboard, even when it moved around and would stay on the best she could if it moved. So proud of her with this! Next time we'd like to start having her learn to move her back legs to move the board to work on the next step of this trick skill. At home continue boosting her confidence and practice this skill with a moving object to keep her keen for it.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For her last session we worked on Lexi's place skill. Lexi did struggle a bit with place today - at the start she would break for toys and people moving but as the session progressed she did improve with this. We went back to working on her send to place from 1-2m away - she did ok but did get a bit distracted by other dogs in the classroom so this is still something to work on. Next time we'd like to see her stay more on place during distractions and to have better focus on the trainer while other dogs are training around her. At home practice sending Lexi to place from short distances to help continue building this skill.||Focus: Distraction||B+|

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