Marvel took a while to adjust to his training today but once focused he did some really great work! Keep up with his skills at home and slowly build those distractions.

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Marvel did pull a lot when exiting the kennel so the first 5 minutes was spent working on his pulling by turning around whenever he pulled ahead. Marvel really resisted any kind of pull on the lead so we also worked on having him relax into the lead when changing directions. Once in the classroom we went right into working on his loose lead skill. Marvel was much better in the classroom and after a few small circuits started walking much better next to the trainer. Working on his loose lead skill in low distracting environments and using his "yes" marker will improve this skill.||Focus: Back to Basics||B|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For his second session we started work on the foundations of place. Marvel was very hesitant to go onto the bed so we spent most of the session slowly encouraging him to put one paw, then two, then all four paws on the bed. At the end of the session he was able to briefly hop onto the bed with all four laws but would immediately get off. This is a major skill to keep working on with Marvel at home as this will help him focus and relax in the house.||Focus: Foundation||C+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For his last session we did try to work on drops but Marvel was not following the lure well enough so we did another session of loose lead in the cattery this time for another new environment. Marvel settled down into his walk much quicker this time and did really well. He also walked much nicer back to the kennels after this session than his walk from the kennels first thing. Good improvement Marvel!||Focus: Distraction||B|
