|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Loki’s first session the trainer focused on loose lead walking. Although he pulled a little to get to the smells, he did not do his lunging that he has done in the past. The trainer changed direction with Loki if he was inclined to pull from the trainer and he was rewarded when he had engagement with the trainer and walked well. Well done Loki, he did really well||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: The next session the trainer took Loki into the cattery to practice his drops. Loki did struggle with this. At first he did not want to get into position and when he was dropping on command he was getting up straight away. The trainer used the foot brake to help Loki self correct and rewarded when he stayed in position. When Loki was working well just outside the cattery, the trainer moved him inside the cattery. Again Loki did struggle but he did progress well and by the end of the session he was holding his drops for a longer time. Next time the trainer would like to see Loki settle quicker and have better engagement.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Loki’s final session was learning a new skill – Bow. Another trick that could go towards his trick title and a fun activity to end his day on. The trainer and Loki had lots of fun during this session. The get Loki to bow the trainer lured him with food. Having the food in front of Loki and then luring him with the food travelling towards his front feet. At first Loki was inclined to go in the drop position. But what the trainer was looking for was the Loki’s front legs going down but his back end staying up. It didn’t take Loki long to start to work this out and he made great progress on this trick.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
