|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Lady’s first session today focused on her loose lead, drops and sits throughout the cattery. There was a very angry/vocal cat in there today so it was a perfect opportunity to test her. She struggled a little bit around this cat and barked a couple times but it was easy to redirect her focus back and get her into a drop or sit. By the end of the session she couldn’t care less about the cat and walked straight past it even if it was being very loud. Testing her in this kind of environment is perfect because it’s very controlled. She did very well with this session!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Her second session today focused on her quoits skill. We are still working on the foundations of this skill but she showed some good progress. This session was all about helping her make the connection between getting the ring closer to the pole. To do this we kept placing the ring in the same position, we had it set up so the ring was on her left and the pole was on her right. Anytime she picked the ring up and either placed it in front or on the other side we rewarded her. By the end of the session she seemed to have grasped some understanding of this task.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Lady’s last session today worked on her place skill outside near the fountain. We found that although she is really good at this skill she can struggle to focus around the fountain. We noticed this first when we took her for some photos that she struggled to engage with the trainer. We decided to use this opportunity to test her place skill, although she would listen to us she would often face away and be looking towards the fountain. By the end of the session we were able to build up more focus, this is a good one to focus on at home. Especially if she enjoys water, you can build her impulse control around this.||Focus: Distraction||B+|

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