|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: Last day, fun day – To finish up the year the trainers used the first two sessions to revisit some of Teddys skills including: • Place • Sit • Drop • Around • Ta-Da • Never Ending Hanky • Middle • Spin During the first session Teddy was initially distracted by the outside environment, to help him settle the trainer was sending him to and from place. Teddy redirected his focus quickly and then the fun began. Teddy performed very well with the skills listed above! He initially required a lure for around and middle, but this was quickly able to be weaned off to a verbal cue and hand signal. The trainer loved Teddy’s enthusiasm when it came to his Ta-Da, he could not do it fast enough! Teddy loves his trick training and really enjoyed showing off his skills to all the trainers. Continuing Teddy’s trick training at home will help build his engagement and be lots of fun for you and him.||Focus: Back to Basics||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: The third session was focused on further developing Teddy’s skill ‘loose lead’ outside in a high distracting environment (another dog training and kennel staff setting up for Christmas). Continuing to practise Teddys loose lead around distractions helps proof his skill and ensures he is prepared when in a real-life scenario. Teddy performed very well with his loose lead, he showed some engagement but was walking in the correct position and did not react to the other dog or person. The trainer was very impressed with Teddy during this session as cars and people were also going past next door and he was not bothered.||Focus: Distraction||B|
