|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: We worked on his loose lead skills first to help him gain focus and get in the right mind frame. He was super excited and kept running in front so the trainer had to keep turning around and going the other direction. After a while he settled down and gave the trainer some really awesome focus. He would still get excited when someone walked past or saw another dog so we would focus on gaining his attention back and sometimes changing direction. His loose lead skill is really good, he just needs to focus on his over excitement. To improve this it will just take time, he is doing super well at this.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For this skill we worked on his drops by all sorts of doors and gates. We got him into his drop position, rewarded, opened the door, stepped through and then released him. He did so well at this and only broke early a couple times, but once corrected he went straight back into position. The trainer was able to make this quicker and quicker throughout the session. To test this skill, distractions on the other side of the door would be a great test for him.||Focus: Manners||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: To work on Winston’s emergency drops we worked in the cattery. This allowed the trainer to safely drop the lead and keep walking. While walking the trainer got Winston to drop, he was rewarded once in position and then the trainer continued walking while he stayed in his position. By the end of the session we were able to get Winston to drop quickly while walking alongside the trainer, the trainer kept going but Winston stayed put. The trainer could then release him and he ran up to the trainer for his reward and cuddles. He did super well with this, the next step would be to practice outside under different circumstances with dogs and people.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
