|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his first session we worked on Remi's loose lead skill outside during our open hours for the added distraction. Remi did fantastic during this session - he had beautiful engagement throughout the session and didn't pull once! We added a few drops during the walk too - the first time he was a little slow but then he dropped perfectly after that. Very proud of his loose lead today! Next time we'd like to work on his loose lead outside around other dogs working to help with his confidence and further solidify his skill. At home keep up the great work and continue rewarding him well for good focus on you during his walks.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: For his second session we continued work on Remi's middles skill. Remi is fantastic at going from his place bed to the middles position so today we focused on having him move with the trainer while staying in middles. After using a lure the first time Remi picked this up very quickly and for the majority of the session would take up to a few steps along with the trainer without the need for a lure which is really great work! Next time we'd like him to move with the trainer a bit more confidently and for him to move in other directions besides forwards. At home practice taking a step or two with Remi in the middles position to help condition him to moving with people.||Focus: Repetition||A|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For his final session we worked on Remi's drops outside with people and dog distractions. At the beginning of the session Remi would break when the trainer called to him or patted their legs while he was in drop. After a few of these though he started staying in drop which was really good and the trainer couldnt get him to break by calling to him after that. He did get a bit distracted by another dog walking around but held his drop well. Next time we'd like to work on higher distractions for Remi to solidify his skill. At home use moderate distractions while he is in drop to continue building his skill level.||Focus: Distraction||B|

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
