|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Millie’s first session was loose lead walking and once again she did really well. The trainer walked up and down the kennel aisle. The trainer also removed Millie’s check chain and did some walking on her flat collar. Once again she did really well. Towards the end of the session the trainer took Millie to the back of the kennels where the dogs distraction is more. Millie did struggle here, understandably so. This will be a focus for next time. It would be great to see Millie be able to walk this aisle without giving in to the distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: The second session was drops at the back of the kennels. The trainer started Millie where there were no dogs close by. She did well with this, only breaking position a couple of times near the start. As Millie’s was more confident with her drops, the trainer moved closer to the dogs. Millie progressed well with this and managed to hold position for longer periods of time. But like the loose lead walking there is more work needed and the trainer will focus on this with Millie for next time.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Spin||Comment: Given how well Millie has been doing the trainer decided to mix it up and have a bit of fun for the final session of the day, and have a bit of a mixed session. The first thing was teaching spin. This is very useful skill to have to help get Millie’s attention back on you if you are out walking etc. She enjoyed this trick and it wasn’t taking long for her to work out what she needed to do to get the treat. The trainer also did a bit of Red Light Green Light with Millie. Millie actually struggled with this and highlighted and area that will be worked on in future. As the trainer was the rewards, running around and revving Millie up, when the drop command was given Millie did not stop and continued to jump and play. Usually Millie is really good with this game, so once again the trainer will have another thing to work on with Millie to help further proof those skills that help her settle and stop jumping.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
We recommend your next step should be…

B: Great Work (80-89%) I mostly understand, Almost neat & complete! Needs practice in some areas. Mild distractions

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
E: Unable to Progress. Needs major focus, seek further options to assist.
