|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Bailey’s first session was loose lead walking. Bailey pulled a bit as the trainer exited the kennels but as the session progressed Bailey settled well and had great engagement with the trainer. The trainer then took Bailey into the main aisle of the kennel where there is big dog distractions. She did pull and struggled a little but overall did well. Next time the trainer would like to see Bailey settle into the session and get focus straight away.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: The next session was drop. Bailey did well with this outside on the driveway and held position well even from a distance. The trainer then took her into the chattery and the smells were a bit much for Bailey and holding position wasn’t her priority! The trainer used the yes marker to help Bailey hold position which she ended up doing regardless of a cat near her! The trainer also spent a little time in the kennel doing drops and this is an area that the trainer will work more with. Bailey as she did really struggle here to hold or even get into position.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Bailey’s third session we concentrated on place with distraction. The trainer used a tennis ball to help cause distraction for Bailey. Bailey did really well with the tennis ball being rolled past her and held place quite a few times without breaking. However, as the session continued and the distraction got closer Bailey did struggle. Next time it will be good to have Bailey hold position regardless of how close the tennis ball is rolled past her.||Focus: Distraction||B|
