|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: In his first session, Robbie focused on building engagement with his trainer by further developing his skill 'spin' within the high distracting classroom (three other dogs training). Robbie performed very well, he initially required a lure to 'spin', but with some guidance, this lure was quickly faded. Robbie showed great engagement throughout this session. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Robbie focused on further developing his skill 'drop' while excited, using red light, green light. We focused on this skill to continue proofing his drops while excited. Robbie performed amazingly, while trying to get Robbie to play he continually drop, before the trainer asked. The trainer was very impressed with Robbie and his impulse control whilst also being in a high distracting environment (four dogs training within the classroom). We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his final session, Robbie focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead walking ' under distractions (training with multiple food bowls around him). Robbie was initially distracted by the food, but with some guidance and the use of 'spin' and 'drop', Robbie began to ignore the food and redirect his focus onto his trainer. As he was performing so well the trainer challenged him with loose lead walking around a running lawn mower, Robbie was initially distracted but quickly redirected his focus. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
