Skill Comment We focused on Grade
Skill learnt: Place Training Comment: In her first session, Millie focused on learning the new skill place within the high distracting classroom environment (multiple dogs and trainers inside). Millie was excited to see the trainers and explore the Hedgegrove environment. She was confident in the classroom and showed good engagement. Millie happily followed a lure onto the bed and jumped off with the lure. She does struggle with duration but this is expected as this is a new skill. As the session progressed she began to slowly build her duration and the trainer was able to take one step away from the bed while she remained on the bed. Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Drop/ Down Comment: In her second session, Millie focused on further developing her skill drop within the high distracting classroom (three dogs training nearby). Millie was not bothered by the high distracting environment, she continued to show good engagement and follow a lure. Millie initially would only drop when going under the trainer's legs, however, after several repetitions, the trainer tried while she standing. She initially followed the lure but kept her bum in the air, with a little pressure she slowly lowered her bottom. She completed several successful repetitions of drop from stand. Focus: Foundation B
Skill learnt: Conditioning Comment: In her final session, Millie focused on conditioning to her name using recall and engagement games. Millie initially showed no response to her name, as the session progressed she did become more responsive to her name. Using these training games it is important to not try and get her attention with her name, once she looks at you say her name then reward. Focus: Conditioning C+
