|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Lupa’s first session was loose lead walking. The trainer started from the kennel and Lupa struggled with pulling and jumping. As the session progressed the trainer changed direction every time Lupa pulled and before long Lupa was walking a lot better than the start. Next time it would be good to see Lupa settle a lot quicker into the session.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Lupa’s second session was a focus on place. She has a good grasp on place and this is helpful for her jumping and remaining calm in certain situations. She did well with this session She did well with this session She did well with this session but did break a couple of times when the trainer pretended to walk away. Lupa also barked a lot at someone who was outside that she could see through the window. The trainer waited for Lupa to stop barking and then rewarded her with the yes marker and a treat. Gradually Lupa learnt that strangers and noises outside the classroom were not something to bark at. Next time the trainer would like to see Lupa not react at all while on place.||Focus: Distraction||D+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For her final session Lupa worked on her drop. This is the skill that is going to help Lupa with her jumping. A good drop skill means Lupa can drop straight away when she starts jumping. A the start of the session Lupa needed to be lured into position and popped back up straight away. As the session progressed Lupa held her drops for longer periods and also handled further person distractions well without barking. Next time the trainer would like to work on Lupa dropping straight away at the start of the session.||Focus: Distraction||D+|
