|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Luther’s first session was being calm in the office with customers and staff around. He did a great job and remained focused on the trainer (the treat giver!!) the remainder of the session was drops. The must have skill to help keep greetings calm. Luther did struggle to hold the drop and was popping straight back up again. The trainer increased the treats and by the end of the session the trainer was able to take a couple of steps away from Luther and still have him hold position. Awesome work.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Luther’s second session was greetings with loose lead walking. At first he did pull a bit but the trainer changed directions a few times and used the yes marker and this helped Luther engage better. Upon coming across staff the trainer put Luther in a drop and used the yes marker with treats. Although still not holding drop well Luther remained calm and kept his focus on the trainer. The trainer utilised the foot break (foot on the lead) which helped Luther remember to hold position if he went to get up. Luther also remained calm and focused when someone came through a doorway and approached. It was a great work by Luther.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Final session for Luther was another drop session. Luther didn’t want to go into position again but given he knows what he needs to do the trainer used the UhUh word with a bit of leash pressure and Luther the started to drop much better. He did a great job and by the end of session he was dropping and holding the position well. At home practice inside slowly increasing the duration that Luther can hold the position. Then slowly add in more distractions.||Focus: Duration||B|

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