|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: For Millie's first session the trainer worked on her loose lead walking. As the session progressed Millie settled into the walk and her focus was fantastic. As she was doing so well the trainer decided to incorporate drops into this session as well. Ideally this would start to build to emergency drops. This is where the handler tells the dog to drop but continues to walk. The trainer needs to work on getting Millie to drop quicker to start training this properly. You can work on this at home. If Millie takes her time to drop use leash pressure and uh huh to get her in position. You can also practice this in the hallway. Keeping Millie close to the wall when dropping will help her drop by your side better rather than creeping to the front of you.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: Millie's second session was the start of the middle skill. This can go towards her trick title as well', if you wish to go further with that. However it is a fantastic skill for a dog to have as it is a secure and safe position for them. The trainer started by luring Millie around behind, then threw a treat between the trainer’s legs. When Millie came through the trainer’s legs she was reward with the yes marker and a treat. In between learning this the trainer also played the red light green light with her. There was only one instance where Millie was to excited to listen. Next time the trainer would like to see Millie drop every time asked during the game.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: For Millie's last session the trainer took Millie outside to push the distractions for place. Millie worked really hard to stay in place with dog and child distractions. She did break a couple of times but a quick ah ha and lead back the place and she settled again. The trainer was impressed with Millie this sessions as the added child distraction did make her lose concentration for a bit but all in all she did a great job.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
