|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Paws Up (on object)||Comment: The trainer used this session to further develop Teddy’s skill ‘paws up’ within the classroom. Teddy initially struggled to perform this skill as there was multiple trainers working within the classroom. However, as the session progressed he quickly began to redirect his focus back onto the trainer. Once engaged Teddy performed very well, he knows the verbal cue ‘paws up’ and loves practicing this skill. Teddy successfully completed ‘paws up’ on a range of different objects including a step, small bucket and suitcase. Continuing to practice this skill at home will help Teddy continue to progress.||Focus: Back to Basics||C-|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: This session was focused on further building Teddy’s confidence surrounding the trainer touching his paws. Teddy has progressed very well with allowing the trainer to touch his paws. Today the trainer began touching in between his tows, initially Teddy would pull his paw away. With some guidance he quickly began to allow the trainer to touch in between his tows and all over his paws. As Teddy was performing so well the trainer spent five minutes beginning to touch his back paws, he performed well. He has come so far with touching his paws, keep up the great work.||Focus: Confidence||B|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: The third session was focused on further building Teddy’s confidence surrounding the nail clippers. The trainer began slowly by showing Teddy the clippers, he had a good sniff and lots of treatos to help condition the clippers. The trainer then began to touch the clipper to his paw, on the first three repetitions Teddy was unsure and pulled his paw away, with some guidance and yummy treatos he quickly began to let the trainer rub the clippers all over his paws. As he was performing so well the trainer began to practice putting his nails in the clippers and rewarding him, Teddy was not bothered. At the end of this session the trainer began clipping his nails, small pieces at a time and lots of rewards.||Focus: Confidence||B|
