|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Solly focused on further developing his loose lead with door manners while walking around the facility. We focused on this skill to continue building his engagement as well as reduce him barging through doors. Solly was initially excited to be training and struggled to engage with his trainer, pulling on the lead and barging through the door. As the session progressed the trainer used his known skills of sit and drop to help redirect his focus to help him settle. This worked well, his engagement improved and he began to watch where the trainer was before walking through the door.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Crate Training||Comment: In his second session, Solly focused on further conditioning the crate. We focused on this skill to build his confidence within the crate. Solly is hesitant to interact with the crate and go inside. Using treats, time and patience he began to slowly take treats from inside the crate. Slowly he began to walk further and further into the crate. While both doors were open he successfully walked through the crate several times.||Focus: Confidence||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In his final session, Solly focused on further developing his drop under distractions. We challenged Solly with building his impulse control by dropping food on the floor while he remains in drop. Initially, Solly broke drop to get the treats, but as the session progressed he began to maintain his drop. We suggest continuing to challenge him at home with different distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
