|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Evie’s first session was loose lead walking in the car park. The trainer worked in a very small area outside and used food as a lure for Evie. At first she pulled a lot to get to the grass where the smells were. However, as the trainer kept changing direction and using the food lure Evie was soon very interested in keeping her focus on the trainer. Although she still got distracted at times Evie progressed really well. Keep using that food lure at home to keep Evie’s attention on you.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Second session was a focus on drops. This was done in the classroom with people and dog distractions. Initially Evie couldn’t hold position long however as the session progressed Evie did much better. At one point the trainer knew another dog was about to come into the classroom, so the trainer put Evie on place and got her attention. Evie paid no attention to the dog. It was great to see. Keep practicing drops at home and increasing the duration that she holds position for as well as some mild distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Final session for Evie was place. She was very distracted this session and struggled to stay on place. There were other people and dogs being trained in the classroom which provided a big distraction for her. She did progress a little during the session and it could be that she was tired as it was the last session for the day. Keep distractions low when practicing at home and use your movement as the distraction for her.||Focus: Repetition||C|
