|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Sampson focused on further developing his skill loose lead with the harness in preparation for the wedding. Sampson performed well, he continued to walk well despite the harness. To challenge his engagement and loose lead under high distractions the trainer practised his loose lead outside the kennel (outside, dogs barking at him). Sampson was initially a little distracted by the dogs but quickly redirected his focus to perform well.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his second session, Sampson focused on further developing his skill drop, utilising the training game red light, green light. We focused on this to proof his drop while excited. Sampson loves to play, especially while he is at Dayschool. Although he loves to play he continues to respond to the drop command and perform well. As he was performing so well the trainer challenged him with playing outside around higher environmental distractions. Sampson continued to perform well, he showed good engagement and duration while in drop. While holding drop the trainer also challenged him with distractions including, being excited, clapping and cheering (to replicate the sounds at a wedding). Sampson did not break drop throughout this session.||Focus: Obedience||A|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Similarly to his first session, Sampson focused on further developing his loose lead around a variety of distractions while wearing his harness. Sampson performed very well during this session, he showed good engagement, ignored distractions and walked well. While walking around the facility he walked passed dogs which he completely ignored. He did initially struggle and get distracted when he was surprised by another person but quickly redirected his focus.||Focus: Distraction||A|

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
