|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Millie's loose lead is coming along well. Today the trainer pushed the distractions more by coming nearer to dogs and the other animals. Millie was distracted at first and tried to pull but with the trainer changing directions constantly Millie soon started paying attention and was looking for the reward. Keep working with Millie and her engagement with you on works. Reward well when she makes that eye contact on walks.||Focus: Repetition||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: For this session the trainer worked on the red light green light game with Millie. Again she was fantastic at this and her drops were very quick! Very impressive. The trainer incorporated leave it into the mix as well and Millie again impressed with how well she is doing with this. Great job for the work you are putting in at home! When the trainer did a couple of run of the mill drops Millie broke a number of times. Also when the trainer removed her check chain and asked to drop Millie was slow to get in position and when the foot brake applied she proceeded to gater roll!! The trainer kept the foot brake and Millie eventually settled in position but did this a number of times.||Focus: Duration||D+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Because of the previous session the trainer wanted to continue working on drops with Millie. To help counter act the taking of the check chain and Millie rolling, the trainer added another check chain. Then took Millies off. Again Millie broke position and when the foot brake applied she tried to roll. She only did this the once during this session. However, she was slow to get in position and broke position quickly. Because Millie does know this skill quite well the trainer used uhuh and lead pressure to put her back in position when she did break. The trainer focused on Millie getting in position quickly rather than duration but as the session progressed duration has started to build again. Ig Millie does push the boundaries at home like she did her today, be firm and consistent with your commands so that you know she is clear on what is expected and correct Millie when needed with the uhuh word and slight lead pressure.||Focus: Repetition||C|
