It was a pleasure to train with Miss Hera today, she is such a clever cookie who loves her training and cuddles.

Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!
"I trained hard, I played hard! Please find below the skills we worked on and my results. I look forward to showing you what I learnt and working on them more with you!" If you have any questions about the skills we trained please feel free to contact todays trainer."
|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: In her first session, Hera focused on further developing her skill 'muzzle' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to help build Hera's confidence surrounding the muzzle. Hera performed very well, she goes straight into the muzzle. The trainer began moving the straps on the muzzle and started to put the muzzle on. Hera continued to successfully take everything in her stride and was not bothered. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Conditioning||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: In her second session, Hera focused on further developing her skill 'place' with duration and distractions (three dogs training within the classroom and name spelt in food). We focused on this skill to encourage Hera to relax and settle in high distracting environments. Hera performed very well, she broke place once, but with some guidance she maintained it well. She successfully remained on place while another dog was walking in front of her. Next time we would like to see Hera not break place on first repetition. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Middle Position||Comment: In her final session, Hera focused on learning the new skill 'middle' with repetitions within the classroom. We focused on this skill to begin training Hera a recall. Hera performed very well, she followed a lure to the correct position (sitting between the trainers legs). The trainer was quickly able to fade the lure and begin using the verbal cue 'middle'. We suggest continuing to practise this skill at home.||Focus: Foundation||B|
