|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In her first session, Ruby was initially a little nervous in the classroom environment. The trainer spent this session building her confidence and engagement while in this environment. Ruby slowly began to relax and take treats from the trainer. Once she began taking treats the trainer began to condition her reward marker 'yes' to further her communication. Ruby performed well, her engagement improved over the session and she began offering behaviours such as sit and going onto the bed. This will help Ruby going into her next session to begin working on her obedience skills.||Focus: Confidence||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her second session, Ruby focused on learning the new skill place within the classroom. We trained this skill to build her impulse control and general obedience. Ruby followed treats onto the bed, the trainer used her reward marker yes and treats to encourage her to remain on the bed, building her duration. The trainer then used her release word-break to guide her off the bed. Ruby performed well, she began to walk on and off the bed on her own. Multiple dogs were introduced throughout the session, she did become very distracted by the dogs and stopped taking treats. The trainer used pats and encouragement to condition her to the other dogs.||Focus: Foundation||C|
|Skill learnt: Exposure||Comment: In her final session, Miss Ruby was not taking treats and was very distracted by the classroom. The trainer used this session to further build her confidence around the facility with an exposure walk. Ruby performed well, she was initially hesitant of some objects, such as the statues but with some encouragement from the trainer, her confidence began to grow.||Focus: Confidence||X|
