|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In her first session, Tilly focused on further developing her skill loose lead around the Pet retreat facility. We focused on this skill to build her engagement and reduce her challenging behaviour of pulling. Tilly was initially very excited to be training, she struggled to show engagement and was very distracted. As the session progressed Tilly redirected her focus quickly and began to perform well. During this session cars, people and dogs walked past. She ignored the car but was very distracted by the people and dogs. She showed no reactivity towards the other dogs, and with some guidance redirected her focus quickly.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session, Tilly focused on further developing her skill drop within the classroom around dog distractions. We focused on this skill to build her impulse control around dogs. Tilly performed amazingly! She showed great engagement throughout the whole session and showed no signs of reactivity. Tilly responds well to the verbal cue drop and has great duration, she did not break drop during this session. The trainer was very impressed with her engagement and focus.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: In her final session, Tilly focused on learning the new skill middle within the classroom. We focused on this skill to build engagement and as the start of a recall. Middle is where the dog moves around the trainer and finishes sitting in-between their legs. Tilly was initially hesitant to go through the trainer's legs. However, with some guidance and yummy treats, she began to perform well.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
