|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Robbie focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead' walking in the cattery. We focused on this skill to build engagement and proof his walking. Robbie was initially distracted by the environment, but with some guidance he quickly began to redirect his focus. Once engaged with he performed very well, he ignored all distractions. Next time we would like to continue increasing the distractions around him. We suggest continue to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Robbie focused on further develop his skill 'emergency drops' with repetitions under distraction (training outside). We focused on this skill to proof his drops. Robbie performed very well, he continued to respond well to the verbal cue 'drop' despite the trainer continuing to walk. Robbie can lose focus when additional distractions are added, people or dogs. With some guidance he quickly began to maintain it well. We suggest continuing go practice this skill at home.||Focus: Obedience||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final Session, Robbie focused on further developing his to ‘touch’ with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to build engagement and for fun. Robbie performs very well, he interacted with the spoon straight away, touch it with nose. As he was performing so well, the trainer began to move the spoon around while he continued to touch it. The trainer was very impressed with how well he is progressing with this skill.||Focus: Foundation||A|
