|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: During this session we worked on Remis place skill. This skill is a helpful skill for a vast number of reasons. When guests are over this skill shines as we aim to keep the dog on his allocated place until released. Remi shows great promise with this skill. We did multiple repetitions and Remi clicked on incredibly fast - he even managed to send to place woth other canine distractions. I would recommend continuing working on this skill at home - if you have a raised bed practice sending him to place and have him hold it until released. Short periods to begin with.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: During this session we worked on Remis drop skill. This skill is arguably the most important skill to have up your sleeve. We want to eventually work Remi to a point where he can perform emergency drops to keep himself safe and happy. Today we started at the very basic and continues using lure and hand cues paired with verbal. Remi seems to have a very basic idea of this skill but struggles to hold duration. I did see an improvement in Remis drops from start to finish and his engagement was fantastic. I would love to see drops worked on at home - changing locations in the house and requesting drops a few times a day goes a very long way.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Remis final session was the loose leash skill. Such an important skill to keep both pooch and parents happy and comfortable. We did a very beginners session of this skill today and he was an absolute superstar. Remi stayed focused and responded very well to verbal cues when in correct position. Remi did many repetitions of back and forth, figure 8s and by the end of his session a dog distraction, even with all of this he did not waiver. Next time I would like to work woth Remi outdoors to see how his behaviour changes.||Focus: Back to Basics||A|
