|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Marie’s first session was loose lead walking. Marie was challenged with a couple of dogs running around nearby in the paddock. She was distracted at first but soon focused better when the trainer changed directions a few times. She was then able to take treats. Marie also got distracted by the smells on the grass nearby and the trainer did struggle to get Marie’s attention back. Moving away from the grass helped. Going forward it will be good to get Marie more focused regardless of what she is walking on.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Next up for Marie was drops with different distractions outside. The trainer made use of working being done with the angle grinder and other tools. Marie was a little hesitant at first but by increasing the distance from the distraction meant she was able to hold position better. As the session progressed Maria was able to drop closer. The trainer then took Marie to the top carpark, however the smells were way to much for Marie and she wouldn’t drop at all. Marie didn’t even want the treats over the smells! The trainer took her back to a place where Marie would drop and finished the session there. Again next time it would be good to get Marie work better in these areas.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Hanky pull was the focus of the last session. Marie knows the skill enough to be pushed a little with it. The trainer put the hanky in the cone and worked with Marie to pull it out of the cone. She did struggle at first but by the end of the session she was starting to pull it out. Next will be to get this happening consistently and for Marie to pull the whole hanky out.||Focus: Repetition||B|
