Mav did struggle with focus a few times today but did improve over his sessions.
It was a PLEASURE training with your pooch today and we look forward to continuing to help you achieve your goals, skills and improve your relationship.
Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For this session we worked on Mavs drop in the classroom using toy and food distractions. He did struggle a bit with duration and having food close to him while in his drop but did fantastic with toys around him when in drop. He did break a few times early but was doing much better by the end of the session with waiting until he was released. Next time we'd like to see him go straight into a drop while in a high energy state (he was a bit slow going into drops during red light/green light) and not be so distracted by food when in drop. At home continue practicing his drops around food distractions to help achieve this goal.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For this session we took Mav outside to do his loose lead as his manners were not great moving from the kennels to the classroom. For the first half of this session he did pull a lot but after a lot of redirection whenever he pulled he did settle in besides the trainer. We did practice a few emergency drops while walking - if there were no distractions he did great but really struggled to listen to the trainer if there were any distractions (other people and/or dogs) around. Next time we'd like to see less pulling on the lead and more focus on the trainer when practicing emergency drops. At home walk him in familiar environments to get on top of his lead pulling and use redirection if he does pull.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: This week the doggies attended their first art class with the trainers. This involved a session full of enrichment and fun, stimulating the dogs mentally, as well as using the opportunity to condition the environment and make something beautiful to take home.||Focus: Confidence||X|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Mav's place session he did well but did break a few times. He did eventually settle and lie down which was really good to see.||Focus: Duration||B|

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
