|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: Upon arrival Piper was quite anxious and stressed. When the trainer approached Piper she turned away and would not accept the treats. The trainer didn’t want to push to much on Piper’s first day so instead spent quite a bit of time sitting outside the kennel. Piper was not interested in the treats and would not come up to the trainer while in the kennel. However, when the trainer walked away Piper showed some curiosity to look for the trainer. At one point she did eat the treats that were in the kennel. During the time in this kennel Piper was exposed to a number of people walking close by her and she did extremely well in not reacting to them.||Focus: Confidence||C+|
|Skill learnt: Conditioning||Comment: After a few sessions with the trainer sitting outside the kennel Piper went into a yard and after approaching the kennel staff and trainer the trainer went into the yard and spent some time sitting in there with Piper. Although she was clearly anxious, she was not reacting to the other dogs around her or to the trainer. Towards the end of the session, although still not taking treats, Piper was responding to her name when the trainer called and was enjoying some great ear scratches!! Piper made great progress today and it was great to see her respond to the trainer. To help build up her confidence it would be highly beneficially if she did a board and train, or even if she came in for two consecutive day schools, to allow the trainers help build her confidence over a longer period.||Focus: Confidence||C+|
