|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Remi’s first session the trainer focused on loose lead walking. When the trainer collected Remi from the kennel’s he was instantly pulling on the lead to get to the other dogs and smells. Therefore the trainer started the session from that point. Loose lead walking is so important, as it means that the dog and owner are going to have an enjoyable experience walking. Remi did struggle with this skill. He kept pulling on the lead. Every time that happened the trainer walked in the opposite direction. Towards the end of the session Remi was getting better. This is something that you can do at home. Start in the driveway and then into the street. When Remi pulls change direction. Next time the trainer would like to continue with this to really proof this skill.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Place was the focus of Remi’s second session. Place is a great skill to have, easy to teach at home and perfect to use when visitors enter the house. Fantastic for teaching our dogs to relax. Remi was reluctant to go on place and very quick to get off at the start of the session. He was also not taking treats. The trainer continue to get Remi on and off place and then moved onto Remi staying on place. He did break a few times when the trainer moved away but towards the end of the session Remi was holding place well. Next time the trainer would like to see Remi not wanting to break for those simple distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Obstacle Course (Confidence Building)||Comment: For Remi’s last session the trainer took him through the confidence course. The trainer noticed that Remi throughout the day was a bit unsure of things and lacking a bit of confidence so decided to tackle the confidence course with him. The course is made up of lots of different things underfoot and around them. As such Remi didn’t want to move at first. After a bit of coaxing Remi made the move and slowly went around the course. The first couple of times Remi was unsure and turned back but soon was running around the course confidently. This is something the trainer would like to do at times with Remi in the future to help build up his confidence. It was great to see him tackle this strange environment.||Focus: Confidence||B|
