|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Millie’s first session was loose lead walking, which also started with door manners. She was much more settled today and it didn’t take long to come out of the kennels. When Millie came out of the building however she was pulling to get to the smells. The trainer used treats to help get Millie’s attention and only worked in a very small area outside. If Millie pulled the trainer encouraged her back using verbal cues as well as changing directions. As the session progressed Millie’s walking improved. It will be good to continue with this low distractions at this stage rather than adding in dog distractions or walking on grass that has lots of distracting smells.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Next up was place for Millie. After a few repetitions on and off the place bed, Millie remember what she needed to do. The trainer then started to increase the duration that Millie stayed on place, whilst The trainer moved around and away from Millie. Millie did a great job and only broke position a couple of time. It was also good to see Millie making good choices. Again this was done in a low distracting environment, so next time the goal will be to add some higher level distractions.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Drops was the focus of the last session. Millie was keen to follow the lure down but in doing so she is folding her leg underneath her in an odd way to get to the treat. The trainer changed tactics and used the treat to lure Millie under the trainer’s leg. This worked much better and the position was a proper drop rather than half on her side. Millie did manage a couple of drops without the trainers leg but not enough to continue and the trainer took Millie back to drops under the trainer’s leg. Next time it will be a goal to get Millie dropping into a better position without going under the trainers leg.||Focus: Repetition||C|
