|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Remi focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead ' walking with repetitions while outside. We focused on this skill to build engagement. Reni was initially distracted by the outside environment, but with some guidance he quickly redirected his focus onto the trainer. After approximately 4 minutes Remi showed great engagement. This is a great skill to begin using the reward marker 'yes' when Remi is showing good engagement (looking at handler), or follows his hander, mark with 'yes' which is followed by a treat. We suggest continuing to practice this at home.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his second session, Remi focused on learning the new skill 'place' with repetitions within the classroom environment. We focused on this skill to help build Remi's impulse control. Reni was initially hesitant to go onto the bed, but he quickly followed treats and went straight on. Reni performed very well, he has good duration when on place. He was performing so well the trainer began to move away from the bed and around the classroom while he remained on the bed. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his final session, Remi focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with repetitions, working on building duration. We focused on this skill to improve his decision making as part of his canine reactivity. Reni performed well, he followed a lure well into drop but struggle with duration. With a high reinforcement schedule (treats every 5 seconds) he began to remaining drop. The level of treats was quickly reduced as he remained in drop. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Duration||B|
