|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Mavs first session was loose lead. At first he was pulling, however, the trainer continued to change direction when he pulled and he soon settled. During the session another trainer started training nearby. Mav did struggle with this at first. Once again the trainer changed direction to help Mav learn that pulling will not get him where he wants to go. Towards the end of the session the trainer was able to walk Mav closer to the other dog being trained, without pulling. Well done Mav.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For Mav’s second session the trainer focused on emergency drops. An important skill to be able to use when out and about it you need Mav to drop quickly and stay in that position while you deal with a situation quickly. This session was done in the cattery and the trainer used lots of repetitions to ensure that Mav will drop on command and not break while the trainer continues walking. Mav is slow to get in position, so next time the trainer would like to see Mav drop quicker than he has been in this session. You can practice this at home, just get Mav to drop while you keep walking. Doing lots of repetitions of this will help Mav get quicker into position.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Paws up was the focus of Mav’s last session. A fun trick and great to use to get Mav’s attention back on his handler. Mav was a bit all over the place to start with, however soon settled and was getting paws up on different objects without the lure. Next time it would be great to see Mav do paws up on a verbal que.||Focus: Repetition||B|
