|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Mojo’s first session we worked on his drop skill using red light, green light. Mojo did really well in this session going from high energy to offering a drop whenever asked. We did this session outside where there were lots of distractions. While Mojo did drop when asked he struggled to hold a duration at times. As there were so many distractions he would break. Mojos next step will be to perform his drop skills outside with other dogs around and to work on his duration around high distractions.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Mojo’s second session we worked on his loose lead walking. Mojo was walking very well next to the trainer and was offering excellent eye contact. To increase his distractions, we placed food bowls around the area. Mojo still did really well and ignored the food bowls however his walking did slow down, and his eye contact decreased a bit. The next step for Mojos loose lead walking will to be to continue walking around high distractions such as food.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: For Mojo’s last session we worked on his paws up skill. To begin with Mojo was only offering one paw onto the container. To help him put two paws up the trainer used a lure. After this he was offering two paws without the need of a lure. As Mojo was doing so well at two paws the trainer decided to increase the task by asking for a back paw to also be placed onto a different container. To help Mojo understand what was being asked the trainer used a lure to get him to step forward onto the container with his back foot. To begin with Mojo was stretching as far over the container as he could but after some patience, he would place his back paw onto the other container as well. Mojo started to pick up what was being asked by the end of the session but will need to continue working on placing his back paw up.||Focus: Repetition||A|
