|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Sit||Comment: In his first session, Remi focused on further developing his skill 'sit' with repetitions under distractions (threes dogs training within the class). We focused on this skill as the trainers have noticed Remi has been struggling with his sits recently. Remi initially dropped when asked to 'sit', as he was struggling the trainers went back to basics with luring Remi into sitting. After several repetitions, the lure was quickly faded and turned into a hand signal. Towards the end of the session, the trainer began to reintroduce Remi to the verbal cue 'sit'. We suggest practising this skill at home to continue developing this skill.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his second session, Remi focused on reviewing his tricks for filming his Novice trick title. Remi performed very well, he loves all of his tricks and showing off how clever he is. He initially required a lure for 'spin' but this was slowly faded. He performed great with his paws up, middle, touch, bell and button. Practising these skills at home are a great way to build engagement and have fun.||Focus: Confidence||B+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his final session, Remi focused on further building his confidence around loud noises, with drop, spin and loose lead. We used the opportunity of the handy man working around the facility with power tools to challenge Remi. He was initially distracted and watched the man because of the loud nose. However, within moments of starting the power tools he began to redirected his focus onto the trainer. The trainer was very impressed with Remi throughout this session and how well he is progressing.||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
