|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building)||Comment: For loki’s first session the trainer introduced him to the confidence course. This course helps dogs experience different things underfoot and around them, helping them build their confidence and have fun. Loki was hesitate at the state and took a bit of luring to get him around the course. However by the end of the session he was going around with no lure of food just vocal encouragement and was a lot more confident than he was at the start. Well done Loki.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Loose lead was the focus of Loki’s second session. The trainer started in the training shed to get Loki focus given how much he likes to smell. It didn’t take long for him to be walking well so the trainer then took him outside. He did really well. The trainer did notice that if Loki was praised a lot he tended to pull ahead. So the trainer kept it low key and rewarded when Loki focused on the trainer. At home try getting his focus in the house with some loose lead walking a few minutes before going outside. Next time the trainer would like to see Loki continue this improvement on his loose lead walking.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: The trainer continued working on the touch skill with Loki today. Again an easy skill to continue to practice at home with a spoon. As Loki had already started to learn this skill it didn’t take him long to remember what he had to do for the treat. However, Loki tried his hardest not to move much. Both trainer and Loki were on the ground, so when the touch stick was slightly out of reach Loki tried other methods to get the treats!! It was great to see his mind working until he got up to touch the stick and get his treat. The trainer would like to continue building this skill with Loki and add in the command with the action.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
