|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For her first session today we worked on Lucy's drops with duration and distraction. Lucy's duration is getting really good though she does get distracted if people are nearby because she wants cuddles so bad. We also tested her drops with a ball - she broke a few times at the start but learnt quickly that she only gets treats for staying in the drop. Next time we'd like to push her a bit further with toy distractions as this is a big temptation for her. Practice her drops at home with low distractions to help solidify this skill.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her second session we worked on Lucy's loose lead skill in the classroom. For at least half of the session she was very distracted, particularly when there was another little dog in the room training. In the last 5 minutes though she really improved, walking 95% of the time nicely next to the trainer and had really good engagement. Next time we'd like to see some more engagement and less distraction from her so that we can work on her pulling issues more efficiently. At home practice her drops in a low distraction environment with lots of rewards for engagement.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Since Lucy had struggled with loose lead in her previous session we worked on it again in her last session. She did so much better this time, even though we did majority of the walk outside on the pavement. She wasn't always focused but walked nicely next to the trainer besides a few soft "uh-uh's" needed if she went a little ahead. She did get distracted a few times but overall did really great!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
