|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' within a high distracting environment (outside with another dog training close to him). We focused on this skill to improve Robbie's decision making as part of his canine reactivity. Robbie performed very well, he showed great engagement with his trainer and ignored the high distractions. The trainer incorporated drops while walking to help keep his engagement strong. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his second session, Robbie focused on learning the new skill 'button' with repetitions within the classroom environment. We focused on this to begin working on Robbie's trick title. Robbie performed very well, he loved learning this new skill and pressing the button. He learnt this skill very quickly, the trainer was very impressed. We suggest continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Robbie focused on learning the new skill 'targeting' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill as it is a great first step to multiple skills and to help him achieve his trick title. Robbie performed very well, he interacted with the spoon straight away. He began touching it with his nose and paws, with some guidance he began only touch it with his paws. We suggest continuing to practice his skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
