|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Millie’s first session was drops in the kitchen of the kennels. Feeds were being prepared for the kennel dogs and people coming and going. It was a great environment for Millie to practice her drops with different distractions. She didn’t do to bad but at first want to creep along the floor to get to the new smells. The trainer used the foot brake and rewarded Millie when she stayed in position. Numerous times the trainer was able to walk away from Millie and have her not break from her position. However, when dogs were walked passed or someone new walked into the kitchen Millie decided she needed to go check them out!! Next time the trainer would like to see Millie work hard to resist those distractions and stay focused on the task at hand.||Focus: Distraction||D+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Millie’s second session was loose lead walking. Her walking is improving all the time and today was a great display of this. Although she really wanted to get to the smells initially, with the trainer continually changing directions she soon worked out that she could not do what she wanted to do. She is also starting to ignore the dogs in the yards at times as well.||Focus: Distraction||C+|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Place was Millie’s last session. The trainer choose this today to do inside as there was another trainer training and Millie would need to focus to stay in position. Millie did struggle so it was a great learning experience for her. To have a dog continually walk passed her with no barrier is something that she has not had here for a while. The trainer worked hard to keep Millie’s focus and as the session progressed Millie did start to settle and not break from place. Although Millie struggled at times today it was a such a great learning day for her and the trainer was really happy with how she went||Focus: Distraction||D+|
