|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 while outside. We focused on this skill to reduce his challenging behaviour of pulling while excited. Ollie was initially very excited to be training, he struggled to show engagement. To help redirect his focus the trainer used his known skill drop and introduced the new skill spin. With these two skills, Ollie began to relax and calm down. Once settled Ollie performed well, he showed good engagement and walked well. He can become distracted easily but by utilising his know skills he redirects his focus quickly.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Ollie focused on further developing his skill drop within the classroom with multiple dogs nearby. We focused on this skill to improve his understanding of the drop skill. Ollie was initially excited but followed a lure into the drop position. Once in a drop, he can struggle to hold duration but progressed well throughout the session.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Ollie focused on further developing his skill place within the classroom with multiple dogs nearby. Ollie responds well to the verbal cue place but can struggle to hold duration. The trainer used his reward marker yes and treats to encourage him to stay on place. During this session, the trainers also discovered Ollie loves tennis balls. The trainer was using the tennis balls as distractions but also as a reward. Once released he could play. Ollie initially struggled to hold duration with the ball distractions, but as the session progressed he began to maintain it well.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
