|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Odin's first session was a quick refresher of his yes marker and then onto place training. Odin struggled at first with getting all four feet onto the place but as the session progressed he was hoping onto the place bed nicely. The trainer started then to increase the duration that Odin was staying on place. Again he struggled a bit with this and wanted to hop off pretty much straight away. But the trainer rewarded him frequently until he was staying on the place bed until released. The trainer also started adding in the distraction of walking around Odin. Keep practicing this at home with Odin and slowly increase the distractions.||Focus: Repetition||C|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Drop was the focus of the second session for Odin. He does have a good grasp of drop but again the duration of him staying in the position was limited. The trainer worked with Odin to get him to stay in the position for a longer period of time. As the session progressed Odin was holding position well. Next time the trainer would like to see Odin holding the position but add in distractions. When at home use lots of repeations until Odin is dropping well on command. Treat him frequently to help him hold position until released.||Focus: Repetition||D+|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Odin had a great final session with a loose lead walk. The trainer took him outside for a walk in the paddock with another trainer and dog. Odin did well and although pulled a bit for the good smells he soon settled when the trainer changed directions. He was not at all concerned about the other dog which was great to see.||Focus: Repetition||C|
