|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Millie had a focus on loose lead walking for her first session. Her engagement was fantastic today with her walking. The trainer took her into a different section of the property to train today. Millie did get distracted by the new smells but a quick change of direction and Millie brought her focus back to the trainer straight away. Next time the trainer would like Millie to resist the smells a bit better! Keep practicing at home with those distractions.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: As it was raining for Millie's second session, the trainer stayed inside with her and continued on the middle skill. Millie is still needing a lure to venture between the trainer's legs but she is progressing well. Keep practicing this at home, by luring her through your legs and then bring the treat towards your stomach to encourage her to sit. The trainer also had a game of red light green light with Millie in this session. The trainer used the slip lead with this to help Millie learn that even if her check chain is off she still needs to listen and focus. After only one time of not dropping when asked Millie did well with this. Keep practicing the red light green light at home as this does help Millie learn to listen regardless of how excited she is.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Drop was Millie's last session. The first part of the session was near the alpacas and sheep. Millie did struggle with this distraction. As such the trainer moved her away a little further to gain back her focus. She progressed well, so that she was able to get closer to the animals and still maintain focus with the trainer. Next time the trainer would like to be able to take Millie closer and keep that engagement. The trainer also used the dogs in the yards as a distraction for Millie and she, once again, was distracted and lost her focus a little at the start. However, the trainer kept rewarding with the yes marker while Millie was in position and Millie responded with better engagement. Great work Millie!!||Focus: Distraction||B|
