|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: This session focused on Kimchi remaining engaged with loose lead within a distracting environment. This was outside with other dogs in training nearby as well 2 men building an aviary. This was a very distracting environment and the trainer had to stop regularly and encourage Kimchi to drop so she was able to calm down and take in her environment. After a few moments she had settled and they presumed the loose lead walking. Kimchi was very confident walking by the builders, dogs, people and was not bothered by the noise created from the machinery tools. Well done Kimchi!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Desensitisation||Comment: Today the trainers made use of some working building an aviary outside the kennels! The men were wearing high vis shirts and hard hats, making lots of noise with a variety of tools and the trainer approached, got the dogs to perform tricks, drops, loose lead and place. This has further developed their skills, confidence and engagement with unfamiliar distractions. Kimchi was an absolute superstar this session and happily performed spins, drops and send to place with these distractions.||Focus: Desensitisation||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: This session worked on Kimchi's red light green light with the Place skill. The trainers were impressed with how well Kimchi did with this! They were able to rev her up with a tug toy, get her to drop it and send to place!! She absolutely LOVED this game and had a number of repetitions before settling on place for a duration. Keep up the amazing work with her drop it cue and send to place, she can struggle to remain on place after such an arousing game of play but has improved immensely.||Focus: Distraction||B+|
