Maverick was a bit naughty at the start of the day but really smashed it by the end. Good work Mav!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: for his first session we worked on Mav's place skill to help him settle into training mode as he was quite excitable this morning. He did break a few times at the start with movement but after a while got back to the level he is normally at. He went on and off place through a whole heap of toys with food distractions which he did great at. Next time we'd like to see him settle into focus sooner and continue pushing this skill for him. At home continue practising this skill with distractions, especially ones with high value.||Focus: Distraction||C-|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: for his second session we wanted to really push Mac's drop skill in the classroom with distractions. He was great with toys being thrown around and objects placed on and around him. He did break a few times with furniture being moved around the classroom for cleaning but did eventually settle down. He was a bit slow to get into the drop a few times - practice putting him in and out of drop with a focus on a quicker response at home. Next time we'd like to see the same level of focus while in drop with other dogs around.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: for his last session we took Mav into the cattery to work on his loose lead under distractions. He did pull a few times but overall did well by keeping pace with the trainer and keeping the lead loose. Next time we'd like to see him go a bit further in the skill with other dogs as distractions. At home continue his loose lead in familiar environments to get it nice and strong before we push it further.||Focus: Distraction||B|
