|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Evie’s first session was place. It was a great first session for Evie. She did well with the trainer walking around her. When the trainer took some steps back Evie did break a number of times. As the session progressed Evie was holding place much better, although did get quite excited when another trainer brought a dog in. However, Evie did settle back down and continued with her place skill well despite that added distraction.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Evie’s second session was drop. This was done in a couple of different areas and near a couple of dogs. She does get distracted by the dogs, and as such struggles to hold the drop position. However, it is skills like this that will help Evie learn to not react to other distractions like dogs. The trainer continued to work with Evie and she did progress well but she does need more work to resist those tempting distractions. Keep working on this at home but with low distractions at first.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Evie’s final session the trainer focused on loose lead walking. This was done in the classroom in a small area between two points. Evie was a bit all over the place to start with but by using food as a lure Evie soon focused and was doing well. Mid session another young dog started training who was quiet loud. Evie reacted at first but with food and movement the trainer got Evie’s focus back and she was walking quiet well again. Evie is not ready to walk outside yet. So keep practicing this at home and when she is doing well inside move to the backyard. Keep the area walking small and use food as a lure to help keep her focus.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
