|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Millie’s first session was loose lead walking. Millie did really well and although pulled towards some of the nice smells on the ground she did well. The trainer just changed direction to help keep Millie’s engagement. Keep working on this and ensure that you use the yes marker when she has good engagement and is walking well.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: The next session was red light green light. The trainer is using this exercise to encourage Millie to be able to listen to commands even when highly stimulated and focus on something she loves. Millie does well with this exercise and it is good to see her listening to the command and dropping straight away. Because she was doing well with this the trainer took Millie into the kennels. Here she struggled and the foot brake needed to be used quite a bit to help Millie stay in position. This is something the trainer will keep pushing Millie with. To help her keep her focus on the trainer and not on the other dogs. Next time the trainer would like to see Millie focus better.||Focus: Repetition||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: The third session was another drop session for Millie. This is because this is the skill that is going to help with her jumping. The trainer took Millie into the cattery. First it was in the outside section. Millie struggled at first with the new environment but soon settled and was staying in position longer. The trainer then took Millie inside. Once again Millie struggled and wanted to keep breaking position so that she could see the cats. The trainer used the foot brake and lead pressure to help Millie get in position and stay there. When Millie was doing the right thing the trainer rewarded Millie. This is an environment that the trainer will work Millie in next time to help nail those drops.||Focus: Distraction||C|
