|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: The trainer started Loki’s first session with place This is a good skill for him to have to help calm him and learn boundaries As there were two other dogs and people around Loki for this session he was very excited and barked at the other dogs. At first it was difficult to get Loki to focus on the command and hold place. However, after a couple of uh uh’s he settled and started to focus. As the session continued he did well and held place with a tennis ball being bounced around and other dogs being excited around him. Continue practicing this skill at home, slowly increasing the distractions. You can practice in the backyard when he nails it in the house!||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: This week the doggies attended their first art class with the trainers. This involved a session full of enrichment and fun, stimulating the dogs mentally as well as using the opportunity to condition the environment and make something beautiful to take home.||Focus: Confidence||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Loki’s third session the trainer worked on drops. Like place this is a great skill to have so that they learn to be calm. Very useful when out and there are distractions around. Loki did well in the classroom despite the other dogs as distractions. However, when the trainer took him outside he was not focused at all. He would not go into the drop position without being lured into place. Once in the drop position he did hold it. Next time the trainer would like to see Loki go into the drop position outside as well as he does inside. Continue practicing this at home with distractions, just like place.||Focus: Repetition||C|
