|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Arlo’s first session started straight from the kennel. Ensuring good manners helps to prevent the jumping that Arlo is so fond of. Once the trainer was able to walk Arlo away from the kennels calmly, the walking behind was the focus. Arlo did jump up a little but much less than what he was doing in his last session. Arlo worked hard this session and he is beginning to master this skill now! Trainers are looking forward to pushing him further with this. Next time trainer will try away from the narrow walkway and focus on practicing in more of an open space.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Next up for Arlo was a focus on drops. Again he was quite slow to want a drop but a number of quick repetitions meant he was moving faster. The trainer decided to push Arlo with some higher distractions. Outside the livestock droppings held great interest to Arlo and it did take a little to get his focus back. Using the Uhuh word and a little leash pressure and Arlo was back on track although a little slower than before. Arlo does have a good grasp of drop so you need to make sure you don’t give in if he doesn’t drop.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Last session for Arlo was place. This was done by the kennel yards with some noisy, active dogs. Arlo at first was very distracted by the dogs and the trainer needed to increase the distance between then an Arlo. Although no longer barking, Arlo was still distracted. The trainer did a few repetitions and Arlo started to focus more. As the session progressed, Arlo did engage well with trainer. To the point he kept breaking place with the trainer movement. The trainer upped the frequency of treats and this helped to increase the duration. Next time the goal is to have Arlo a little closer to the yards! Great session.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
