|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In his first session, the trainer focused on conditioning the dremel with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this to help build Teddys confidence surrounding the tool. Teddy performed well, the trainer began with it off and slowly conditioning it as a positive (when he looked or interacted with it, he was rewarded). Slowly the trainer began to touch Teddy with the tool, Teddy responded well. He initially moved away but quickly began to accept the touch for yummy treats. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home, starting very slow and with lots of treats.||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: In his second session, the trainer focused on continuing to condition Teddy to the Dremel while it was turned on. Teddy performed very well, the trainer began with it running at a distance, however the distance was slowly reduced as the session progressed. As Teddy was performing so well the trainer began to touch Teddy with the Dremel while running. Once again he was initially hesitant and moved away, but with some guidance and yummy treatos he began to accept the touch. The trainer was blown away by Mr Teddy and his progress today.||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Teddy focused on further developing his skill 'targeting' with repetitions. We focused on this skill to help Teddy achieve his trick title. Teddy performed very well, he can become distracted by his surrounding environment and stop interacting with the spoon. But with some guidance he redirects his focus back onto the trainer. When focused teddy touches the spoon with his nose well.||Focus: Foundation||B|
