|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Loki was more confident in the classroom therefore the trainers worked on developing his communication markers ("yes") as well his understanding of the skill place (mat training). He was very vocal during this session, especially when he noticed Lily getting attention as well. It is important for Loki to develop more engagement with the trainers and less concern regarding what Lily is up to. Place is an important skill to redirect Loki's barking and get him to focus on a skill instead.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Loki is easily distracted by the classroom however was very food motivated. This enabled the trainer to easily redirect his focus and work on the obedience skill -drop. Although the focus was on and off, the trainers were able to lure him in and out of drops using the under the leg technique.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: By the last session both Loki and Lily were exhausted from their big day. The trainers make a point to not overwhelm them too much during their first Dayschool's therefore ended it on a positive with a walk around the facilities. This enabled them both to explore, develop confidence with their surroundings and with the new trainers.||Focus: Confidence||C+|
