|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his first session, Murphy focused on learning the new skill 'place' with repetitions with distractions (dogs training within the classroom). We focused on this skill to build his impulse control and his duration. Murphy performed well, he was initially hesitant to walk onto the bed, with some guidance and treats he began to confidently walk on and off. As the session progressed, he began to increase his duration, as well as increase his confidence surrounding the bed and the classroom. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: In his second session, we focused on building his confidence surrounding the crate. To help Murphy settle within the classroom environment the trainer focused on building his confidence surrounding the crate. Murphy initially struggled to enter the crate, but with some guidance, treats and patients he slowly began to show more confidence surrounding the crate. Murphy successfully went in and out of the crate several times throughout this session. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his final session, the trainer focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead walking ' with repetitions under distractions. We focused on this skill to help Murphy remain calm when walking around other dogs. Murphy was initially distracted by the environment, but with some guidance he began to redirect his focus back onto the trainer. Murphy showed no visible signs of reactivity in this session.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
