|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Hollys first session today was focused on her loose lead walking at the pony club next door. We practiced for a couple minutes up and down the driveway to help her focus. From here we progressed next door, here she was quite distracted so we didn’t get very far. We walked up and down working on building her engagement with the trainer. After a while she was doing much better and we could walk a bit further. She did pretty well in this environment but would have momentary lapses of focus. Keep working in different environments and practice that engagement.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: For Hollys second session today we worked on her rollover skill. We practiced on lots of little improvements. We rewarded her each time she got a bit further, she seems very hesitant to roll over on the hard ground so we tried it on a mat. This seemed to help a little bit but we couldn’t get her the whole way. Keep practicing this at home, she might feel more comfortable in a familiar environment as being on their back can be quite a vulnerable position.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For her last session today Holly worked on her place training. We tested her with food distractions by writing her name with biscuits, she absolutely smashed this and stayed on place while we did this. She did struggle with trainer distractions though, when the trainer squatted down and tempted her with cuddles she did break position before being released. Keep practicing her place training with lots of different distractions and see how she goes!||Focus: Distraction||A|
