|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session we took Remi outside to work on his loose lead and exposure. Remi sniffed around for the first 30 seconds and then was perfect in his walk with fantastic engagement. Even when asking for spins and drops without lures while walking he did them straight away every time. To help with some of his confidence we walked him near the fence as there were a few people loading noisy sheet metal into a trailer. Remi did watch them but listened great to the cue to drop and help his drop even when a dog came up to the fence next door. So proud of Remi as this is a big step in confidence for him! Next time we'd like to continue exposing him to more situations while walking as he is confident in his skills to deal with them. At home use his obedience skills to continue getting him used to new scenarios.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For the first 5 minutes of his second session we worked on getting Remi in and out of a car as he had struggled with this on drop off. Remi did not have any issues going in and out from the back of the car and the front (besides needing a little help up to get on to the seat). As he wasn't fazed by the car we spent the rest of this session in the classroom going over his drops around other people and dogs which he did really well with. Next time we'd like to push his drops around people and dog distractions as he is ready for this next level. At home practice drops often and use distractions to help test and strengthen his skill.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For his last session we continued on with Remis skateboard skill. Remi has so much confidence with this skill! He puts his paws up right away and didn't break when it would move a little. I think he quite likes this skill as he would demand food if he was on it and not getting treats! Next time we'd like to start moving it a little and see how he goes with that for confidence and strengthening his back legs. At home continue getting him to do trick skills to help his confidence but we are certainly noticing a big difference from when he first started with us.||Focus: Confidence||B+|
