|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Mojo focused on further developing his loose lead walking with repetitions under high distractions. We focused on this skill to build engagement and proof his waking. Mojo was initially distracted by Kong walking in close proximity, he struggled to engage with his trainer. However, as the session progressed Mojo quickly began to redirect his focus onto the trainer. Once engaged Mojo performs very well, he ignores distractions and works perfectly. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home, rewarding for engagement.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Mojo focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with repetitions under distractions. We focused on this skill to work on encouraging Mojo to drop on the left side of his trainer, instead of in front. Mojo struggled to respond to the verbal cue drop, while outside in the high distracting environment. To redirect his focus and improve his position when in drop the trainer went back to basics, luring his into drop. After several repetitions this lure was slowly faded. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Back to Basics||B|
|Skill learnt: Targeting (touch)||Comment: In his final session, Mojo focused on further developing his skill 'touch ' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to build engagement and encourage Mojo to problem solve. Mojo performed very well, he interacted with the spoon straight away, touch it with his nose. As the session progressed, he continued to reliable touch the spoon. Next time we hope to begin adding the verbal cue 'touch'. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In between his session, Mojo was challenges with remaining on passive place with high distractions (multiple dogs training within the classroom). Mojo did not break place despite the high distractions. He successfully remained on place for 3 × 15 minutes sessions.||Focus: Duration||A|
