|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In her first session, Nala focused on building her confidence within the classroom, as well as building engagement with her trainer. Nala was initially nervous to see the trainers but quickly began to wag her tail and get excited. When in the classroom she was initially nervous but taking treats, the trainer started playing engagement games with her, when she gave the trainers engagement (eye contact) a treat was thrown. This worked well. Nala's confidence grew and her engagement also increased.||Focus: Confidence||X|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: In her second session, Nala focused on further building her confidence with conditioning to a wobble board. Nala was initially hesitant to interact with the wobble board, she would eat treats off the top but not touch it. After some conditioning, Nala slowly began to place one paw onto the wobble board while following a lure. The trained was very impressed with her confidence. As her confidence continued to grow she began to place her two front paws onto the wobble board.||Focus: Confidence||C+|
|Skill learnt: Sit||Comment: In her final session, Nala focused on further developing her skill sit with duration within the classroom. We focused on this skill as although she responds well to the verbal cue sit she struggles to hold duration. The trainer used her reward marker yes and treats to encourage her to hold position. Nala performed well, with this encouragement she began to maintain her sit well. We would recommend practising this at home to ensure she has a good understanding of this skill.||Focus: Duration||B+|
