|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Rolo focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead' around the Pet Retreat facility. Rolo was initially excited and over aroused, this caused him to display challenging behaviours of pulling and rushing though doors. The trainer utilised his skill drop to help him relax and redirect his focus. This worked well, he slowly began to relax and show good engagement. Rolo performs well in low distracting environments (carpark), showed great engagement and responds to all commands (sit, drop, spin). When the environmental distractions increase by moving to the grass, he lost all engagement. Similarly, to earlier utilizing know skills he began to redirect his focus.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Rolo focused on further developing his skill 'drop' with the training game red light, green light. Rolo performed well, he was initially excited about playing and did not respond to the drop cue on the first two repetitions. However, with some guidance he quickly began to maintain it well. Once focused Rolo didn't miss a beat, he continued to drop despite having a ball in his mouth or the trainer continuing to play.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his final session, Rolo focused on further developing his skill 'drop' and 'place' around the hose. We focused on this skill as Rolo struggles with his impulse control around the hose and water. Overall Rolo performed well, he did initially struggle to engage with his trainer and respond to commands. The trainer began with the hose turned off, this was initially challenging for Rolo, however with some guidance he began to maintain it well. Once he was working well the trainer slowly began to turn on the hose. Once on, he broke place once but quickly began to maintained well. Despite how well Rolo performed, once you begin to move the hose while on, he does lose all focus and engagement. This will improve with time and practice.||Focus: Obedience||C|
