|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her first session, Hera focused on further developing her skill drop while outside in the high distracting environment (on the grass with people standing near her). Hera was initially distracted and struggle to perform, however as the session progressed, the trainer began to use play as a reward, this changed the whole game. Hera began to perform very well, she dropped using only a verbal cue and showed great engagement. See our Instagram story to see her progress.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: In her second session, Hera focused on further developing her skill drop within the classroom under dog distractions. As she performed so well in her first session the trainer continued to use play and toys as a reward. Hera was initially distracted by the other dogs. However, she quick redirected her focus once the trainer began to play. As she was excited, she struggled to respond to the drop command. As the session progressed, she began to listen and drop when asked.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Muzzle Conditioning||Comment: In her final session, Hera focused on further conditioning to the muzzle and building duration. Hera interacted with the muzzle quickly, placing her nose inside a little. As this session progressed, she began to place her nose further in for longer periods of time. She successfully held her nose in the muzzle for several seconds without breaking.||Focus: Duration||B+|
