|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Evie started off her day with her ‘skateboard’ skill, focusing on getting her to start pushing herself. She has become so much more confident, and it is fantastic! The first 10 minutes of the session the trainer was able to push the board approximately 5 metres away, yay! The last 5 minutes the trainer encouraged her to push herself and she did it for a couple of steps! Keep up with this skill at home, she is definitely eager, just needs lots of treats and encouragement to keep moving the board on her own!||Focus: Confidence||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Next up, Evie worked on her ‘drop’ skill, focusing on her duration with distractions. Evie was very distracted today and broke quite frequently, especially when the trainer attempted to spell her name in kibble. As that seemed to be too distracting for her today, the trainer scrapped that idea as more dogs entered the classroom. Evie was still very distracted by this, but not too much where she would break, which is good! In future sessions we want for Evie to resist the yummy temptations of food and remain in the position asked until released.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: To finish up, Evie worked on her ‘loose lead’ walking outside, with a dog distraction. She did very well from a good distance away, but when the trainer tried moving her closer the first time, she started jumping and carrying on. The trainer then asked for a drop, she complied and stayed there until she calmed down. After a minute or so, the trainer released her and continued slowly inching to the other dog and Evie responded so well! She had great engagement and did not let the dog bother her for the remainder of the session. Keep up with this great work at home and if you find her to get overly excited, place her in a controlled position and try again. Superb efforts Evie!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
