|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In his first session, Teddy focused on further conditioning the Dremel using 'paw'. We focused on this skill to help build Teddy's confidence surrounding the tool. In this session the trainer asked teddy for paw when the Dremel was in their hand, encouraging him to touch it. Because he was performing so well the trainer began to ask for paw while the Dremel was in the other hand turning it off and on. Teddy Initially pulled his paw away, but with some guidance quickly began to maintain it well.||Focus: Conditioning||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his second session, Teddy focused on learning the new skill 'skateboard' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to continue building Teddy's confidence and to help him achieve his trick title. Teddy performed very well, he interacted with the skateboard straight away. It didn't take him long before he was beginning to put both paws on and the skateboard around. The trainer was very impressed with how quickly he interacted with the skateboard and his engagement. Great work Teddy!||Focus: Foundation||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his final session, Teddy focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead walking' with repetitions under distraction (training outside with another dog in close proximity). Teddy performed very well, he was initially distracted by the environment and showed little engagement with his trainer. But as the session progressed, he slowly began to redirect his focus onto the trainer and was ignore other distractions. Once engaged Teddy performed very well, he did not pull or show any signs of reactivity towards the other dog.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
