|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Roddy focused on further developing his skill loose lead with emergency drop around the pet retreat facility. We focused on this skill to build his engagement and as a safety skill when around other dogs. Roddy was initially distracted and showed little engagement. As the session progressed he began to redirect his focus and walk well. While walking the trainer began to incorporate emergency drops, Roddy performed well he responds well to the verbal cue drop but can struggle when distracted. When distracted the trainer used a low hand signal to guide him into the correct position.||Focus: Obedience||B|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In his second session, Roddy focused on further conditioning to his muzzle while in the classroom. During this session, Roddy was very distracted by the classroom environment and showed little engagement. The trainer spent a few minutes conditioning Roddy to the environment before beginning his muzzle conditioning. Once focused Roddy performed well, he would follow treats into the muzzle and would begin to offer the behaviour without following the treats.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his final session, Roddy focused on further developing his skill drop with duration within the high distracting classroom. We focused on this skill as recently Roddy has been struggling to maintain his drop while training. The trainer began with low distractions, walking around the classroom and him. Roddy struggled to maintain his drop when the trainer approached. As this seemed to be his biggest distraction the trainer continued to challenge Roddy with approaching in a variety of ways. He initially struggled to maintain his position but with some guidance, he began to perform well.||Focus: Duration||B|
