|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Sadie’s first session was place in the classroom with another dog being trained with a tennis ball. Lots of distractions and she did great. The trainer then added a plate of food and that distracted Sadie. Then as Sadie resisted that distraction the trainer used Sadie’s desire to have cuddles as another distraction. Sadie broke once than the trainer could see Sadie making the right choices. But she got vocal about it which was cute. Well done Sadie a great session.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Next session was drop. This was done outside in the driveway. Sadie is great in the classroom but outside the distractions can be to much for her. A session on the driveway is less distracting than in the grass. Sadie had trouble at first with her duration for her drops. But an increase in the reward helped Sadie work it out and by the end of the session she was hold drop quite well! Keep practicing at home. If Sadie is breaking position then lessen the distraction and increase the reward until you can up the distraction again.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Loose lead was Sadie’s final session and at first she did struggle to focus and engage with the trainer. The trainer kept changing directions and using treats to keep Sadie on her toes!! As the session progressed Sadie improved and was walking well with good engagement.||Focus: Repetition||B|
