|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Stanley spent his first lesson with a game of red light, green light. This game consists of playing a game with Stanley to get him excited, then putting him on place to calm down. Once he had settled we repeat. This helps develop his impulse control and his ability to settle himself down. Stanley was quite excited throughout the whole lesson. As we worked Stanley started settling faster, laying down on the bed as he calmed himself down.||Focus: Desensitisation||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: We worked on Stanley's drops using the hand signal and verbal. Stanley went down into the skill but popped back up pretty quickly, we focused on his duration, keeping him in the drop until his release word. As we went, Stanley was happier to stay down in the skill for longer, still popping up at points but staying in the skill for most of the second half of the lesson.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Desensitisation||Comment: Stanley went for a walk around the facility practising his door manners. Stanley didn't want to go down into his drop and forest but after a bit of repetition, Stanley went onto his drop by the door consistently. Stanley jumped back up a lot throughout the session. We practiced his duration in the skill by the door before opening it up and releasing him through. After some repetition he was happy to wait before making his way into rooms||Focus: Obedience||C+|
