|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Holly's first session was drop. Holly is usually good with her drop so the trainer added in noise. Clapping wood together caused Holly to break everytime. However she loves her food, so upping her treats meant that she progressed to tolerating the noise and was able to hold position. Because Holly does like her food, the trainer used this as a distraction and boy did she struggle at first. Using the Uhuh word and the foot brake meant it didn't take long for Holly to start focusing on the trainer rather than the food. Awesome session||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Hanky pull was next up for Holly. At first she wasn't grabbing the hanky much at all. The trainer marked Holly for biting the hanky. When she was doing this consistently the trainer waited for Holly to continually pull the hanky out of the cone. By the end of the session Holly was able to grab the hanky numerous times to pull it out of the cone. Great session.||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Last up for Holly was drop and place by the office while the van was being load with dogs. Holly did well on place and after initially breaking for trainer movement Holly did well to hold place regardless of the dogs and staff walking passed. When in a drop, Holly did struggle more and the trainer had to increase the distance between the distraction and her. This enabled Holly to hold drop better. She still focused on the distraction but help drop. Next time it would be good to see Holly focus more on the trainer rather than the distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
