|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: After a quick refresh of Scout’s yes marker, the trainer started Scout again with his place skill. This time Scout was highly distracted by another dog being trained nearby. It took a lot of work for Scout to pull his attention back to the trainer. Once he had his attention back on the trainer he did well. The trainer increased the duration that he stayed on the bed. The trainer also moved around the bed and Scout tried to break a few times during that time. This skill can be practiced at home while you watch TV. Pop Scout on a lead and while the show is on Scout needs to be on place. Once an advert comes on then he can be released from place and have some play time. As soon as the show comes back on pop Scout back on place.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: The trainer continued on with Scout’s drop skill for his second session. Scout really struggled to start with as there was another dog being trained again. As Scout is very food motivated and it didn’t take much to redirected his attention back to food and what he needed to be doing. By the end of this session Scout was holding his drops well enough for the trainer to be able to stand straight without Scout breaking position. Next time the trainer would like to continue to work with Scout to help increase his duration and also his ability to ignore the distractions and hold position.||Focus: Distraction||D+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: The trainer continued with Paws up for Scout's final session. Scout does seem to struggle with this and works hard to get the treat without actually putting his feet up on things. However, today he did paws up on a skateboard and the trainer moved it while his front feet were on it and he did really well with this new feeling. The bigger objects he appears to do better with. Next time the trainer would like to see Scout pushing through his discomfort of the things he doesn't want to put his feet up on. He is doing really well though and loves his food. So use the food as a lure at home to get him to put his paws up things.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
