|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: We went out to the training field with narrow work a place bed to work on this skill. This is a very distracting spot as the head holds all kinds of smells to distract Marie. We focused on Marie's distance from the trainer as well as sending her to the bed from a distance. Marie needed a few repetitions to get into training mode, but when she did her, she did very well. After a few early releases, we started to build our distance from Marie. Marie did well waiting in the bed even as we got up to 20 meters away. After Marie was smashing the skill we then started to send her to the bed from a few meters away, backing up over time getting to about 15 meters away.||Focus: Distance||B+|
|Skill learnt: Recall||Comment: We took Marie out to a grassy area outside the classroom. We put Marie on the long line to practice her recalls. Marie came back most if the time, although having acfew instances of being distracted by smells and ignoring the trainer. After s little but if repetition, Marie was coming back quickly with a big smile on her face.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Marie went over her skateboard skill, focusing on her distance while on the board. Marie had a lot more confidence hopping on the board today. We focused on fading out the lure and getting Marie to ride the board as far as possible. Marie stayed to hop on the board with just a point, riding the board a few meters at a time.||Focus: Duration||C+|
