|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In Lucy’s first session we trained Lose Lead outside, this skill is great for engagement and a skill to help her pulling when taking her for a walk. She did pretty well with this skill only pulling a few times at the start but that was about it. Next session I would like to work on this skill more with her and maybe around other humans as that is her distractions. Training this skill will help her pulling. Either train this outside in the front of your yard or out in the back of your yard. Put her on lead have the treats closest to her head, if she pulls a head walk back the other way when she looks up at you reward with “yes” and treats. Take it easy on her as she is a nervous dog.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: In her second session we trained paws up. This skill is great for confidence building. She wasn’t quite sure what we were asking her but she started to understand it half way through the session. Next session I would like to work on this more with her as I know she will mail this skill. Training this skill at home is some fun for you and her to do together, have something she can put her paws on, like a tub and flip it upside down or anything like that, tap on the object and say paw, it might take her awhile but once her paw i on, reward with “yes” and treats. See if you can get both paws on.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: In Lucy’s last session we trained touch, this skill is great for confidence as well and even though she knows it pretty well doing something that she knows helps her confidence still. She is very good at this skill, I would move the spoon around and say touch so she had to walk to it to touch it. Next session might see if we can do two objects and say touch. Again this is something fun to train at home and Greg for confidence building. We used a Woden spoon you can use anything though. If she kicks it sniffs it reward with “yes” and treats. Then start moving it from her and say “touch” lots of rewards always.||Focus: Distance||A+|

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