|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead ' walking within a high distracting environment (training outside while people, dogs and cars walk past). We focused on this skill to build engagement with Remi. Remi performed very well, he initially struggled to engage with his trainer, but he quickly began to redirect his focus and engage with his trainer. Once engaged, Remi performed very well, he ignored all distractions. We suggest practising this skill at home beginning with low distractions (inside your house) and slowly increasing the distractions (backyard, front yard, on the street). Focusing on engagement, whenever Remi looks up at you (showing engagement) mark with 'yes' and reward.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: In his second session, Remi focused on further developing his skill 'middle' with a focus on sending to middle from different angles. Instead of being a direct line into middle, the trainer challenged Remi with changing their angle. We focused on this skill to proof his middle. Remi performed very well, he successfully goes into middle well while there is a direct line. When the trainer begins to change their angle, he can struggle. But with some guidance and going back to basics (luring or hand signal), he performed well. We suggest continuing to challenge Remi with his middle, asking for sit or drop, walking away from him and sending him to middle.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In his final session, Remi focused on further developing his skill 'place' on different objects, including a small dog bed and a towel. We focused on this skill to challenge Remi's understanding of 'place'. The trainer went back to basics and lured Remi onto the objects, after several repetitions he was performing very well. He successfully identified the objects when asked to go to 'place' and has good duration. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home to help challenge Remi and further his understanding||Focus: Obedience||B+|
