Opal has been a pleasure to train this week. Hope to see her back soon.

Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!

|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Opal’s first session was loose lead walking and conditioning to the horse. At first she didn’t get to close but slowly came forward. But then she barked a bit. So the trainer put distance between the two again and rewarded Opal for not reacting when she looked at the horse. By the end of the session Opal was able to not worry about the horse at all. It was great.||Focus: Desensitisation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Next up for Opal was a game of red light green light. This is where the trainer revved Opal up and then got her to drop. As soon as she dropped the trainer released Opal and started the game again. The biggest problem was trying to rev Opal up. But when she was excited she still listened and dropped when told. A really good drop skill is going to help with Opal listening even when excited and will enable you to be able to take the yummy dead stuff away from her!!||Focus: Repetition||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: The trainer decided, for Opal’s final session for the week, to teach Opal a trick. Ring the bell. Opal really had to think and work hard to figure out what she needed to do to get those treats. By the end of the session Opal was starting to make the connection between putting her paw on the bell and getting a treat! It was fantastic to see her thinking about it all.||Focus: Repetition||C|

D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
