|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: Sadie’s first session was loose lead walking and she really did struggle with this. The trainer started inside at first and Sadie was quite focused. However once outside she lost all focus and started pulling straight away. The trainer worked in a very small area and kept changing direction. Sadie was quite distracted by the other dogs in the yards but as the session progressed Sadie did start to check in with the trainer. It was a good start with higher level distractions. At home practice in the backyard and work to get Sadie’s focus on you. Use treats to lure her and get that focus.||Focus: Distraction||C|
|Skill learnt: Place Training||Comment: Next up for Sadie was place outside. She did struggle at first with this and was jumping off a lot without trainer movement. As the session progressed Sadie was holding position better but was still breaking position at random times when she felt she could. The trainer used the uh uh marker and leash pressure to guide her back on the place bed. At home practice this and increase the distractions and the duration that Sadie stays in place for.||Focus: Distraction||B|
|Skill learnt: Drop/ Down||Comment: Drops were the focus of Sadie’s final session. She was very distracted today and this session was no exception where she struggled to even look up for a photo. The trainer took her outside however, the distractions were to great for Sadie and the trainer continued the session inside. Sadie was able to hold drop a little better inside but the trainer needed to increase the frequency of treats and was not able to move far from Sadie without her breaking. Practice this at home in very low distracting parts of the house. Increase the treats to help Sadie stay in position.||Focus: Duration||C|
