|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For her first session we worked on Lady's drops in the classroom. At the very start she was a bit distracted and would only hold them for a second if the trainer moved away. After a few minutes of drops she did settle back into her normal skill level so we started with some food distractions. Food is a really big distraction for Lady so we worked on having her drop in between 2 plates of dry food. The first time she tried to take some of the food but quickly learnt to just stay in the drop and focus on the trainer which is really good progress. Next time we'd like to continue with this higher level of distraction for Lady (with the eventual goal of being able to spell out her name in kibble while she stays in a drop which we have been unable to do so far with her). At home practice having her drop with minor food distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her second session we took Lady into the cattery for her loose lead for the added distraction. During the first few laps she was quite distracted by all the new smells but had good focus after that. Next time we'd like to see a bit more focus and her not being as distracted by the environment around her. Keep up the good work at home!||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Sit||Comment: For her final session we worked on red light/green light for Lady's sit skill. She did really well at this - always moving into her sit quite quickly even while chasing the trainer around the room. For the last few minutes of the session we took her outside for a bit of added distractions which she also did well at. Next time we'd like to see her with a bit better durarion for her sit - she was a bit distracted outside and struggled a bit to stay in the position for a time. At home use red light/green light to help with her response time on her obedience skills and her focus.||Focus: Distraction||B+|

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
