|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Mav focused on further developing his skill loose lead walking and recall, in the carpark with another dog nearby. Mav was initially distracted by the environment and struggled to perform his recalls. To help redirect his focus the trainer worked on his loose lead. This worked well, he quickly began to ignore distractions and engage with the trainer. Once engaged Mav began to respond well to the recall command but he still required a lure from the trainer.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his second session, Makerick focused on further developing his skill quoits within the classroom. We focused on this skill to build his problem-solving skills around trick training. Mav performed well, he quickly interacted with the ring while the trainer was holding it. He opened his mouth onto the ring multiple times. As he was progressing so well the trainer challenge him further by placing the ring on the ground. This was initially challenging for Mav, however, with some guidance, he began to pick up the ring off the ground.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his final session, Mav focused on further developing his skill drop at a distance while outside. We focused on this skill to challenge his drops under new criteria (working at a distance on a long line). While in the classroom Mav performed well, he quickly responded to their verbal cue drop even when at 3 meters away. As he was progressing well the trainer moved outside, while outside he was initially distracted and showed little engagement. The trainer spent some time practising his drops while close to the trainer. This helped redirect his focus which allowed the trainer to begin creating more distance between themselves and Mav. Although he progressed well throughout the session, Mav did become very distracted by people and dogs walking past.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
