|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her first session, Phoenix focused on further developing her skill loose lead with drop around the pet retreat facility. Phoenix was initially distracted by the environment and showed little engagement. However, as the session progressed the trainer began to incorporate drop. This helped her redirect and maintain her engagement, despite the distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session, Phoenix focused on further developing her skill drop, with duration under distractions. We focused on this skill to build her impose control when in drop. Phoenix initially broke drop once when the trainer started adding distractions (when the trainer began to approach while excitable and energetic). With some guidance she began to maintain it well. She successfully remained in drop while the trainer moved around her, bounced balls in front of her and rolled past on a skateboard. Head over our Instagram story to see her progress.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her final session, Phoenix focused on further developing her skill send to place under distractions. Phoenix performed well, she loves going to place despite whatever is in her path. The trainer stated with creating distance, Phoenix performed very well with this. As she was progressing well the trainer began to increase the distractions with food and toys. She ignored the toys well, but was a little distracted by the toys initially. As the session progressed, she began to slowly ignore the treats and continue to race to her place.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Today the trainer challenged Phoenix with remaining in drop while the trainer worked with another dog in the classroom. Phoenix initially broke drop twice, but began to maintain it well throughout the remainder of the session.||Focus: Duration||B+|
