|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: Freya's first session was drop and spin. Freya was quite excited in the classroom with more trainers and dogs than normal. Because of this the trainer used drop to help give Freya a job to do and focus on the trainer. She did break a few times but as the session progressed Freya held drop better. Then the trainer focused spin. Great job by Freya with this. Still using a lure Freya was able to spin in both directions. To help Freya not sit at the end of spin, continue luring her out of the spin and towards you.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Next up was hanky pull, with some impulse control. Freya started the session well and was focused on grabbing the hanky. However, Freya was very distracted by a cleaner doing the weekly clean with a sprayer. (Think pump pack weed sprayer type thing) Freya tried to get to the sprayer and couldn't focus. The trainer put Freya in a drop and worked on getting Freya's attention back. Freya really struggled with this and is something to work on further next time. Finding these distractions are a great way for Freya to learn it doesn't matter she must hold position.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Last was a focus on loose lead walking with drops. Freya was great on the driveway but when the trainer walked closer to the grass, Freya tried to pull the trainer towards the smells. The trainer changed direction and worked on again getting Freya's focus. Being able to ask Freya to drop helped bring the engagement back to the trainer. As the session progressed Freya settled and focused better. The trainer also got Freya to practice walking on both sides and by the end of the session Freya was walking on both sides well.||Focus: Distraction||B|
