|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her first session, Ruby focused on further developing her skill place within the classroom. We focused on this skill to build her impulse control and duration around her basic obedience. Ruby was excited to see the trainers today. Once in the classroom, Ruby was initially nervous but after a few minutes of conditioning, she began to take treats and follow a lure onto the bed. Once on the bed, she can struggle to hold duration, this is expected as she is still learning the skill. The trainer used her reward marker yes and treats to encourage her to remain on the bed. This worked well. We would recommend continuing to practice this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session, Ruby focused on further developing her skill drop at a basic level. We focused on this skill to begin building her basic obedience. Ruby performed well, while in sit she followed a lure well to go into drop. Once in drop, she stands up very quickly. Throughout the session, the trainer continued to lure her into the drop position and slowly build her duration. Ruby responded well, slowly holding her drop for longer periods.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: In her final session, Ruby focused on building her confidence with the new skill paws up on a balance cushion. Ruby was initially hesitant to interact with the objects, she would eat treat off the top but would not touch it. With some time and lots of treats, she began to build her confidence she started to touch it with one paw. After a few repetitions, she successfully placed both paws up onto the balance cushion.||Focus: Confidence||C+|
