|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his first session, Maverick focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with repetitions working on door manners while in the pet retreat facility. We focused on this skill as Maverick can display challenging behaviours such as jumping and pushing towards doors. Mav struggled throughout this session, he was distracted by the environment and showed little engagement with his trainer. He frequently broke drop, but with some guidance and engagement games he slowly began to redirect his focus, as well as maintaining his drop. Next time we would like to see Maverick not break drop so frequently and show more engagement. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Manners||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Maverick focused on further developing his skill 'drop' under distractions within the classroom environment. We focused on this skill to help improve Mavericks jumping. Throughout this session the trainer was playing with Mav encouraging him to jump, however whenever Mav got excited he dropped instead of jumping. The trainer could not get Maverick to jump up during this session no matter what they tried. This is a great achievement for Mr Maverick. We suggest continuing to focus on this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Maverick focused on further developing his skill 'place' under distractions. We focused on this skill to help improve his jumping. Maverick performed very well, he did not break for any distractions or human movement (excitable and silly approaches). However, he can sneak off place, but with some guidance he quickly began to maintain it well. We suggest continuing to focus on this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
