|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Millie’s first session was loose lead walking. She was quite distracted to start with and was pulling a bit. The trainer worked in a small area and kept changing direction and by the end of the session the trainer was able to continue to walk around the property with Millie walking well and checking in regularly with her trainer!||Focus: Distraction||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: The second session for Millie was emergency drops in the kennels. Millie is still quite new to these so the trainer started with dropping Millie normally and then as the session progressed the trainer pretended to keep walking when asking Millie to drop. Millie did well with this and was dropping as soon as she was told and the trainer was able to take a step forward. Well done Millie.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Millie’s final session was drops once again. It was to get at the back of the kennels, however when the trainer walked Millie out of the classroom there was a dog having a run in the paddock. Millie was very distracted by this and didn’t want to drop. The trainer worked with Millie so that when Millie was in a drop she also wasn’t getting up straight away. As the session progressed Millie was holding the drop. The trainer the proceeded to work on drops all the way to the kennels for the remainder of the session. Millie did well until closer to the kennels where she lost concentration as other dogs were nearby. Once again the trainer will continue to work on this with Millie.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
