|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Ollie focused on further developing his skill loose lead walking around high distractions. Ollie was initially overexcited and struggled to show engagement, however, once the trainer incorporated his known skill of drop he began to redirect his focus and perform well. The trainer was very impressed with his engagement despite the surrounding distractions. Ollie successfully remained engaged and went into a drop despite being outside, when people and dogs were around. He did become a little distracted at times but redirected his focus quickly.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Ollie focused on further developing his skill emergency drop within the classroom. Mr Ollie knows his drop skill well, he responds to the verbal cue and shows good duration under distractions. When practising his emergency drops Ollie initially struggled, the trainer went back to basics and used a low hand signal to help him to the position. As the session progressed he began to show good improvement and get into the drop without a low hand signal.||Focus: Back to Basics||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Ollie focused on learning the new skill Bang within the classroom. Ollie performed very well during this session, he followed a lure quickly and began to hold good duration. To train this skill the trainer lured him into the drop position (without using the verbal cue), once in this position the trainer lured him slowly over his shoulder until he was lying flat on the floor. Once in this position he was marked with yes and rewarded. After several repetitions of going into this position, the trainer began to build his duration, similarly to his other skills.||Focus: Foundation||B|
