|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Bailey’s first session was loose lead walking. At first she was excited and wanted to say hello to staff that she passed on the way. The trainer kept Bailey moving and used treats to help her disengage from the other people. Once down in the bottom carpark Bailey settled better and although still working in a small area Bailey focused well. The trainer changed direction when Bailey did get distracted. Keep working in a small area with low distractions.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Sit||Comment: Next up was sit and drop. The trainer worked on sit first and Bailey would pop straight back up again. However slowly increasing the duration meant Bailey was holding position for longer. Next time it will be good to increase the distractions during this. The trainer also worked on drops around other people. Bailey got very excited around these people. The trainer increased the distance and Bailey was able to drop but couldn’t hold position. Creating more distance helped Bailey focus a little better and the trainer was able to slowly get closer and have Bailey still drop and hold position better. Create distance to help Bailey be calm and focus on what she needs to do. Slowly decrease the distance to the distraction that stimulates Bailey.||Focus: Duration||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Last up was send to place. As Bailey is pretty good with her place skill the trainer pushed it by sending Bailey to place from a bit of a distance. The trainer started pretty close to the bed and slowly got Bailey to go place from further away. Bailey did a great job this session and worked really hard.||Focus: Repetition||B|
