|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Amora’s first session was place by the office in the top car park. She struggled a little with trainer movement and wanting to smell everything. Once she settled from that she did well even when customers arrived. Her undoing was when our caretaker went passed to unlock the gate. He has been the greeter on many times for Amora so she couldn’t contain herself when he walked passed!! The trainer used the Uhuh word and put her back in place. She also broke when the ride on mower with trainer was backed out of the carport near office. These were big distractions for Amora and is something to work on. However she was great with the other people, dogs and cars! A fantastic first session.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Sit||Comment: Second session for Amora was a session of sit and drop. At the start Amira would slide straight down into a drop regardless of which command was given. So the trainer kept the treats up high and that worked better and Amora started sitting much better and holding it well. As the session progressed Amora started executing the commands better and was able to hold each for a period of time! She loves her food which made progression with this great. At home practice holding the treat higher as you ask for a sit. As Amora gets better fade the lure out again. Also use a wall to help Amora position the sit next to you rather than her scooting around to face you.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Next up the trainer continued on with rope pull. The treat n train was used for this. Which Amora loves! At first she kept pawing at the machine and it took a little bit for her to come away. The trainer started slow with rewarding Amora for coming towards the trainer and then waiting for her to touch the rope. She made the connection towards the end so next time it will be good to start asking for more. For example her starting to bite the rope||Focus: Repetition||C+|
