|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For her first session we worked on Miley's place skill around other dogs in the classroom. At the beginning she was very excitable and would frequently break to try to get to the other dogs. As the session progressed she stayed on the place longer but was still very distracted and watchful of the other dogs. Next time we'd like to see her more focused on the trainer and less distracted by other dogs in the classroom. At home continue with her place skill with distractions such as people and toys to progress her skill.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For her second session we focused on Miley's loose lead in the classroom with other dogs present. At the start she was quite distracted but did settle quickly with some engagement with the trainer for majority of the session. Next time we'd like to see more engagement with the trainer and walking more next to the trainer instead dof lagging a little behind. At home practice loose lead in familiar environments with a focus on engagement so she is less likely to be distracted by other things.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For her final session we worked on Miley's drop skill. She follows a lure well and listens well to the command but struggles to hold her drop with any distractions. The focus of the session was to get her to stay in drop with very minor distractions (trainer crouching/standing up, moving one small step away) which she did improve in throughout the session. Next time we'd like to see her hold her drop longer so that we can start pushing her with distractions. At home, practice her drop skill frequently with small distractions such as taking a step or two away and then rewarding.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
