|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Chili’s first session was introduction to the yes marker. This is what we used to let the dog know they’ve done the right thing and they will get a treat. The trainer then focused on loose lead walking with Chilli in the main kennel aisle. It did take a while for him to not pull all the time. To help with this the trainer changed direction every time Chilli pulled. Next time the trainer will work more on this and add in more distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Second session for Chilli was place outside. This is a good skill to have to help with impulse control. It gives him a place to go when he gets to excited. The trainer did this outside and Chilli did struggle with the distractions around him. He was keen to get to the alpaca poo, which is a fav of all dogs! The trainer worked with Chilli to keep his focus on her and not the farm animals nearby. He did start to bark at times but by rewarding when he quietly looked at them Chilli was soon bringing his focus back to the trainer.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Drops were the final session for Chilli. Another fantastic skill to build on to help with impulse control. Today was spent luring Chilli into position. He did struggle but started to drop from a sitting position and was holding it longer. The goals for this going forward would be to play games that rev Chilli right up and then get him to drop. Then recommence the game. This will help with Chilli being distracted and not listening.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
