|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Clarrie's first session was loose lead walking and he struggled right away with this just outside the kennels. However, the trainer kept changing directions every time Clarrie pulled. It wasn't long before he settle down and was engaging with the trainer more. When going out with Clarrie for a walk, do a bit in the driveway first. This will settle him and you start the walk the way you want it to end once you leave the house.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Given how much Clarrie was distracted outside the kennels the trainer wanted to use the same distractions for place training. Clarrie was very good near the other dogs, however, once he got sight of the sheep and alpaca's he lost all focus. The trainer took him back abit from the distractions and reengaged him. Then slowly got closer. Clarrie did break place a number of times and was so distracted by the animals he didn't take treats. The trainer will continue to work with these distractions tomorrow.||Focus: Distraction||D+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Once again using the same distractions the trainer wanted Clarrie to practice his drops. Again Clarrie struggled with these distractions. Unlike place the trainer had to keep a good distance from the distractions so enable to Clarrie to engage and drop. He did break a number of times and the trainer used uhuh and leash pressure to get him back in position. Again the trainer will work with Clarrie and these distractions tomorrow.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
